  1. I am a member of Post#0323, Lehigh Acres, Florida. Also a Vietnam Veteran 1967-68.

    I watched a news clip of President Obama bopping across the stage at your convention Not once did I see him shake a Veterans hand that was on the stage. Did I miss something? How can he say he and his administration supports the military when he is eliminating thousands soldiers of all ranks from the military. Where was he our his administration at the funeral of the (2) star General? he was golfing. Where was the Secretary of Defense? I could go on about the treatment of of the Military by this administration. There is not enough time.

  2. I was present, and that is absolutely not true. Maybe you could not see or have a full view. He even came off the stage and talked to and shook hands with Veterans.
