It appears President Obama hasn't got even a little time for our fallen soldiers

I was EXTREMELY UPSET when I read the following article:
A veterans group is vowing to get a handwriting expert to determine if the letters sent to parents of Navy SEALs killed in Afghanistan were signed by President Obama himself or an electronic autopen that can replicate his signature.

Karen and Billy Vaughn, whose son Aaron Vaughn was one of 17 SEALs and 13 other Americans killed in a helicopter crash Aug. 6, 2011, raised the issue at a Tea Party rally in Tampa during the Republican National Convention. Karen Vaughn said she compared the signature on her letter, dated Sept. 23, 2011, with those received by other families of SEALs and determined the signature was mechanical.
If this proves to be true....SHAME ON YOU, President Obama.

It's to bad his priorities seem elsewhere. All 104 of them.

President Bush on the other hand handled matters such as this differently:
the Washington Times ran a story claiming that Bush had sent personal letters to more than 4,000 families of soldiers killed in action and 9/11 victims during his presidency which was largely unnoticed by the public.
The full story is HERE.

This reminds me of an old Pink Floyd song, "When The Tigers Broke Free":
And kind old King George sent Mother a note
When he heard that father was gone
It was, I recall in the form of a scroll
With gold leaf and all

And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away
And my eyes still grow damp to remember
His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp
It doesn't seem like a lot to ask for those who gave their lives for the President to give a moment!
