Deported United States Veterans
A Vietnam Veteran is outraged over the deportation of United States Veterans. According to Carl Holgate, “The United States Government has been deporting US Veterans since 1996 that served in wars such as Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan.”
“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.” -Abraham Lincoln-
Carl Holgate’s displeasure with his local VA, the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, FL, prompted him to found the Facebook Group Veterans And The VA. He states, “It’s the best thing I could have done, it got me out of my ongoing difficulties with the VA and into helping others with similar problems or worse.”
One of those problems Holgate knew nothing about until founding the Facebook Group was the deportation of US Veterans. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Holgate shaking his head. He was referring to the staggering number of Veterans not only separated from their loved ones but in need of medical attention that is being denied by the very Government they fought to protect.
“On Friday, July 8th, 2016 deported US Veterans, and their families will enter the United States seeking Humanitarian/Medical Parole,” states Holgate. He went on to add, “They will also be calling for President Obama to end the policy of deporting Veterans who have served in the United States Military.”
Holgate has started a Petition supporting the July 8th event and challenges current Presidential Candidates to put their money where their mouth is and support our Veterans instead of just talking about it. “I’d love to see how Donald Trump would handle this one,” said Holgate.
“What the July 8th event needs is support from someone like Gary Sinise,” Holgate states. If he did nothing more than sign the Petition, it would bring tremendous attention to this gross injustice”, Holgate declared.
Holgate urges concerned citizens to sign The Petition and show your support for Our Veterans!
