Members of the United States Armed Forces have been asked to give up a great deal in defense of our country. We have been asked to miss holidays and birthdays, anniversaries and family celebrations, children’s births and milestones, first steps and last steps. We have been asked to survive and fight in places civilians dare not go. More importantly we have been asked to give up some of the very freedoms we fight to protect. We have volunteered our lives, fundamentally and literally, for the American idea. Now, our country demands more from us. It demands we give up our personal and family benefits for its fiscal defense. It demands we sacrifice more so the American way of life can survive. This we will do, for no other reason than it is what our nation needs from us. So while the wealthiest of Americans fight to keep their nickels and dimes, we that fight, will donate ours. But be careful America, there will be a point when we have nothing left to give…or no one left to give it.
The choice of the Government to continue to allow the unemployed, or undocumented aliens living in America to receive free (or nearly free) higher education is more important than providing the same option to those willing to lay down their lives in support of the nation. This is wrong, and demonstrates a clear break in faith with the individual military members. If I am to lose my Tuition Assistance to support the greater good of this great nation rising out of debt, the rest of the non-working, non-tax paying, or any other individual receiving TA to obtain a higher education at the government’s expense, should also lose that benefit.
Signing this petition will not guarantee a change, but only a response from the Commander-in-Chief. I only hope that when this petition receives that response, it is not used for political gain to show how much the people want free government hand-outs. Rather, I hope this petition is used as an example of how a small percentage of the population is asked to bear a large portion of the budget cuts.
