|Support lacking for military personnel, retirees|
We at one time had good leadership, most of the time, in this country. Mr. Obama, it is known that you want world peace. There has been no peace in this world since Cain slew Abel. Ever since then, yes I am going to use the word, God let man decide his own destiny.
