I have been in the military for 18 years, with three deployments to the Middle East. I was in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm in 1990-91. Then I was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004-05 and Operation New Dawn (also in Iraq) in 2010-11. These tours of duty have caused multiple problems in my life – physically, emotionally, mentally and financially. America will always be the place that I love to call home but this country has taken a toll on me and many soldiers like me. Way too many problems for such little pay!
To the editor: Today my husband and I went to KMart looking for a flag to display for Veteran's Day.... we were told they were on the end caps by the registers.. nowhere to be found replaced with Christmas stockings. My husband finally found an employee that told him per management orders they were placed in the stock room. He found one in the back room for us. What is wrong with this picture?
