To the editor:
I read where the community is asking for donations to help build a handicap accessible home for a wounded veteran.
Can't our government build these people a home? These men and women fought for our country. Our government sent them to those countries to fight for all of us.
Our wonderful politicians can find all kinds of money to house, clothe and feed the immigrants that are coming across our borders by the thousands. Oh, they also get free medical and dental.
Yet our government can't find enough money to build a simple home for a wounded veteran. Evidently the immigrants are more important than our own citizens that fought for us.
This is really, really sad.
