The state of Illinois is officially the worst state in the union in supporting our veterans.

I, as a retired Marine, have a personal interest in this travesty and work to ensure that this situation is reversed. Working together we can take care of those who have put their lives on the line for our liberty.

I will work tirelessly to protect our veterans from the nationalized healthcare system.

We must eliminate much of the bureaucracy that has kept our veterans from receiving the needed healthcare care that they have earned and that we have promised. Many of our veterans have given up hope and moved to other states in search of help. This is absolutely unacceptable.

We must ensure that all of our veterans’ hospitals and clinics are fully staffed so that they can be fully utilized.

I have three words for veterans, "REMEMBER YOUR OATH!"

Illinois is the #1 worst state in the union in taking care of our veterans. We have seen veterans (like so many others) leave this state, because the can't be taken care of here. This is a travesty and a crime.

If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, this is your opportunity to do something about it. Rise up out of your foxholes, come out to this meeting and plug yourself into a veterans organization dedicated to restoring our nation and our state back to the Constitution that we made an oath to defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. My veteran brothers, the domestic enemy of our country is far more evil than any foreign enemy we have ever faced. If left unchecked, this enemy will forever change the America that we put our lives on the line (and so many other have made the ultimate sacrifice) to defend. Let's make sure their sacrifice was not in vain.
