Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been holed up in a Mexican prison for an astounding 58 days following his arrest for weapons possession on March 31. Tahmorressi accidentally crossed the border at the San Ysidro checkpoint after taking a wrong turn. While several lawmakers have been working to secure Tahmooressi’s return, the Obama Administration has yet to comment.
Meanwhile, damning information continues to emerge about the negligence and suspicious book keeping at the VA medical facilities around the country. While President Obama claims to be “madder than hell,” heads have yet to roll for the gross incompetence.
Glenn has spoken at length about the troubling treatment of our returning service men and women, and during a Memorial Day picnic in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, television personality Montel Williams was overcome with emotion and became visibly choked up while delivering a speech addressing the ongoing VA scandal.
Williams, a 22-year veteran, will be joining Glenn on the Glenn Beck Program later this week to further discuss the VA, but below is a video of the speech:
“He’s exactly right. He is exactly right,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “The question is: How do we fix this.”
Glenn fears that between Afghanistan and Iraq, war has become somewhat of a chronic state of affairs over the last decade. As a result, we have failed to give both our active service members and veterans the attention they deserve.
“We don’t even know the war is going on,” Pat said. “It’s interesting because it’s not reported anymore… You don’t even know there is a war in Afghanistan.”
“We’re raising a group of people that [have] never known the United States out of war,” Glenn added. “If your kids are 13-years-old, they have never lived in an America that hasn’t been at war. Think of that. And it’s not like World War II, where it consumed us.”
