I was never as appalled in my life as when I read what is happening at the New Hampshire Veterans Home, caused by the state budget cuts (“Indignity for veterans,” Monitor letter, June 3). It is deplorable and disgraceful to all veterans to be charged for medical products. This charge should be included in their room and board.
What in hell has happened to the people in this country and in our state? What about morals – have we lost that too? I am disappointed and discouraged with the way our veterans are being treated after what they have been through. It is unforgivable. I am a 37 year veteran, and I’m sure they went through a lot more than I did.
To our state officials, shame on you for letting this unforgivable act to take place. If not for our veterans, you would not be where you are today. I have lost all respect for our governor and the Legislature. God bless our veterans and God bless America.
