9/11 victims and veterans should have our help, support

Comedian Jon Stewart stressed that funds for 9/11 victims should still be available to victims.

I’m a survivor, and fortunately I have no health-related problems. However, many people who are survivors, responders or involved in cleanup aren’t so fortunate. They deserve our support.

Now there is another group that needs help due to health or emotional problems. Our combat veterans. Anyone who experienced combat deserves help when needed. This includes actions that I supported like Korea and Desert Storm, as well as those I opposed, like Vietnam and Iraq in 2002. They went, they fought and experienced pure hell. They went and now that they need medical or emotional help because of it, they should get it. I let my legislators know this.
