Vetreran’s Affairs II

Oh, and the idea that I contact my representative in the House. Plainly laughable. The person who represents the CD in which I reside is the Speaker of the House who could not even endure Navy boot camp. He spent all of seven weeks, including the time it took to process his discharge, in the U.S. Navy.
