    Who is fooling who here, the US Senate can't do "squat" unless the US House also acts on it for Veteran's. They say the U.S. House of Representatives passed six pieces of veteran legislation with overwhelming bipartisan support this week (H.R. 2433, as amended; H.R. 2074, as amended; H.R. 2302, as amended; H.R. 2349, as amended; H.R. 1263, as amended; and H.R. 1025). DID Obama sign it?. "NO". It's just a unsigned Bill then. Which deserves our help?. The disabled vet or illegal alien?. ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. A local group representing unemployed military veterans said it's angry that illegal immigrants were working to build the new VA Hospital. Wouldn't using someone else's valid ID to get verified for work be a case of tax and/or SS fraud? In addition to being illegal - a crime in itself - they are committing even more crimes. Also, one of the three main contractors may have helped hide the illegal immigrants. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents scoured the buildings, and nine illegal immigrants were caught at the job site, six of them were hiding in the ceiling.

    Is Congress working on this for all Veterans?.

    Duty, honor, country, these words are just as significant today as they were in the past. Veterans Day is a time to set aside the norm and recall the countless number who endured the inhuman existence of the horrors of war. It's a time to honor those who never came home, those who still suffer, and those who were lucky enough to return whole. Veterans Day is America's day for saying thanks. Thanks with the deepest sense of time-honored respect, and gratitude for your devotion that maintains this free nation of ours. The price of freedom rings with a void that can never be replaced. Between volleys of rifle fire, parades and speeches of valor. We remember those who served. Young and old alike, a never-ending salute of gratitude for their unselfish acts of courage. They continue to fill the ranks vacated by their predecessors. They continue to leave behind everything they hold sacred to fight a war that scripture tells us will never end. This coming Friday is their day. A day for those who took the same stand that their forefathers did to protect this land of ours. This is a day of "JOBS" remembrance-2.
