Montel Williams Gives a Passionate Speech on Memorial Day and the War on Veterans that All Should Listen To … I Dont Care About Politics, What I care About Is That This Country Lives Up to Its Obligations to Veterans
KUDOS to Montel Williams …
TV celebrity and US military veteran Montel Williams provided a speech on Memorial Day that all should listen to. He blasted both President Obama and the Congress for not acting on behalf of veterans and their required healthcare. As Montel stated, “I don’t care about politics” … what I care about is that this country live up to its obligations to its veterans. AMEN BROTHER! Williams was referring to the current VA healthcare scandal where individuals were systemically cooking the books to make it appear that veterans were being seen timely on waiting lists.
“Whether you agree with me politically or not, I know you agree with me on this, ” he said. “We can argue about whether we like football or basketball as soldiers or sailors, airmen, marine or coast guardsmen … when it comes time, we never leave a soldier on the battlefield.”
We’re at war,” Williams said, “Guys are still dying. How dare this nation treat us this way.”
