Presidential Race in Rear View Mirror: Romney Ran Classy, Tough, Big Issues Campaign

Nov 7, 2012: The morning after the election Mitt Romney relaxed with his family in Boston and shared a favorite treat – chocolate milk. While tweeting this photo, Mitt’s Body Man DG Jackson wrote, “Gov hanging out with family this morning. What an incredible family. So blessed to be so close to them.”

A rear view mirror look at the presidential election…

A headline yesterday announced the Romney campaign was shellshocked. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t be? I was. We all were.

With our nation in dire straits, we believed, hoped, and prayed our fellow Americans would see Obama’s vicious smears, lies, class warfare, and unrelenting personal attacks on Governor Romney for what it was. Gutter distraction. Unable to run on his record, knowing the real obstacle to his reelection was the economy, Obama and team decided early on to “kill” Romney with the aforesaid Chicago thuggery tactics. And a complicit mainstream media aided and abetted them.

Election Consequences: Man Forced to Lay Off Employees Due to Obamacare

Elections have consequences…

As a result of Obama’s reelection and Obamacare repercussions, a Las Vegas small businessman, who employs 114 workers, was forced to fire 22 workers yesterday. Asking to be identified by his first name only (for obvious reasons), ‘David’ spoke with KXNT radio host Kevin Wall:

(CBS Las Vegas)…

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.

“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

    My Closing Argument, and This Ain’t Just Rhetoric

    Overview: My Main Philosophical Reason I’m Voting For Mitt.

    I feel so strongly that Mitt Romney is the right choice for president that I wanted to make one last post, my closing argument as it were, in hopes of convincing that one last undecided voter out there somewhere to vote for Mitt. I wanted to explain why I, and the other authors here at Mitt Romney Central, have devoted such time, effort, emotion, and yes, money, to the cause of electing Mitt. My list of specific reasons why I like Mitt, and my counterarguments to President Obama’s case, are below. But I can sum up why I feel so strongly with this: Barack Obama’s vision for America is inconsistent with that of our founding fathers and our Constitution.

    A Limited Government Preserves Freedom

    Our government was founded on the principles of self-determination and freedom. Americans were not content to be told by the British government how much they should pay in taxes or what freedoms they were entitled to. So they fought a war to gain their independence. When the founding fathers then set up their own government, at the forefront of their minds was the concern for how to preserve their hard-won freedoms. So they came up with three fundamental ideas about the new federal government: (i) it should be small, split into different branches with checks and balances over each other’s power, (ii) it should share power with, and in fact have less power over citizens’ day-to-day lives than, the states, where the citizens were better represented, and (iii) our most basic freedoms should be enshrined in a Bill of Rights to make absolutely sure the federal government did not violate them. This combination of ideas, they thought, would assure, over time, that the God-given rights they had won back from their government at great cost would be preserved against tyranny.

    Obama’s Vision of a Larger Government is Antithetical to Freedom.

    In 2008 when Senator Obama talked of “transforming” America and saying “we can do better,” it was clear to me he was talking about fundamentally changing these key principles. He stood for a larger federal government; one that would try and take responsibility for the poor and do more for its citizens. While that may sound nice, having a government undertake that responsibility also means it must become larger, tax more (a government that undertakes to define what’s fair for all its citizens will also try and make everyone pay their “fair share”) and become more involved in our lives, much more involved than the founding fathers intended. A larger government necessarily becomes more difficult to manage, begins to take on a life of its own, and becomes very difficult to control. A larger federal government also means a shift in power from the states, where citizens can more easily control their own destiny. And once people begin to rely on government largesse, cutting the size of that government and its programs, even if the government cannot afford them (witness our overwhelming deficits and the troubles in Europe as it tries to cut back), becomes very, very difficult. People become less willing to give up that security, even if it means a loss of liberty. And they can become accustomed to the idea that the government represents someone else, not them, and that they are owed something by that government (witness appeals from the left that sound like class warfare). As a result, I believe the policies of President Obama reflect a threat to our liberty. Perhaps not immediate. Perhaps only a little. But what he wants to do, at its core, is inconsistent with the intended size and role of our government, which means we will inevitably lose a little, or a lot, of liberty. How much really depends on how much further down Obama’s road we go. And in my view, we’ve already lost too much.

    Example: Obamacare.

    As an illustration of what I mean, I’ll use Obamacare. It sounds nice to make sure everyone has health insurance. And there are lots of stories of people who can’t afford insurance, and how having it would benefit them greatly. I get that, and I feel for their situation. This is what Obama meant by “we can do better.” He’d like to use government resources to fix these problems. But, just like when you get your first credit card, you need to look beyond the nice things you can buy and decide whether you can really afford it, because that bill will come due at some time. As for the cost in dollars and cents, it’s clear we can’t afford Obamacare. We just can’t. It adds trillions of unfunded government outlays over the next two decades. And once these benefits are offered to citizens it’s very difficult to take them away. In addition, Obamacare has already begun to infringe on our freedoms. At its core it’s the federal government (not the state, which is the principal difference between Obamacare and Romneycare), forcing us to buy a product. Then, because it forces us to buy this product, it must go further and legislate the minimum requirements of this product (or everyone would buy the cheapest version available). That legislation now includes elements some religions find offensive. How’d we get here? By involving the federal government in something it really was never intended by the founding fathers to be involved in: providing health insurance. Further, because the IRS will be in charge of enforcing compliance with the mandate, it will need to know our personal health information. The founders’ vision of limited federal power, with express limits on what the federal government can and can’t do, has been violated by Obamacare. And having the federal government in this position simply poses a threat to our freedom. The founders knew power corrupts, and while we think we can trust the government now, we don’t always know we will be able to. When will it be your religious belief that’s infringed? Or your freedom of speech? This is why the Republicans resist President Obama so much. This is why Obamacare did not get one single Republican vote. This is why Obama’s own budget was rejected by not only Republicans but his own party. And finally this is why Mitch McConnell said it was his goal to make sure Obama only had one term: to try and make sure the damage President Obama does is not long-lasting. Obamacare is a threat to our freedom, and it’s just one example.

    This Ain’t Just Rhetoric.

    Let me say that this is not just rhetoric. I’m not just making an argument because I want you to vote for Mitt for some other hidden reason. This is why I’m voting for Mitt, and why I honestly believe everyone should. This is what worries me about the prospect of Obama serving another term. He has already made some strides toward “transforming” America into something I believe it was never intended to be. Obamacare was one very large step in that direction. As Vice President Biden said, it was a “[blanking] big deal.” I know the further we go down this road the more difficult it is to go back. I also know the GOP will fight Obama to preserve that liberty, which is likely to result in more gridlock at a time when our government needs to work together. Unfortunately, though, cooperating with the president can mean, and has meant, the loss of some of these liberties, which makes compromise difficult.

    Mitt Romney’s Vision & Plan Will Lift All Americans


    In the 2008 election, Barack Obama received 95 percent of the black vote. 95 percent! That is astonishing! Many experts believe he will receive that same level of support this year. I don’t think so at all. Barack Obama’s pro-abortion stance along with his reversal against traditional marriage was too much for many in the black community. For many, their values trumped race.

    Photographer Unknown

    Last night a great American gave me a ride in his taxi. He was born in Haiti and came to America for a better life. I asked him if he was going to vote Tuesday and for whom and he told me he was voting for Obama. I asked why and he replied, “Because all my friends are voting for him.” After a three minute discussion about the facts listed below along with my explanation that the economy would improve drastically under a Mitt Romney presidency, he told me he would cast his vote for Romney. I asked him to visit this site with his friends and help them to understand as he now does.

    The WSJ’s editorial board member Jason Riley published an op-ed yesterday entitled, For Blacks, the Pyrrhic Victory of the Obama Era:

    Four years ago, 95% of black voters went for Mr. Obama, and he is likely to win something approaching that percentage in his re-election bid, notwithstanding economic data showing that blacks have lost ground on his watch. When the president assumed office, unemployment was 12.7% for blacks and 7.1% for whites. Today it is 14.3% for blacks and 7% for whites, which means that the black-white employment gap has not merely persisted under Mr. Obama but widened.

    No matter. The president’s approval rating among African-Americans is pushing 90%, and a Washington Post/ABC News tracking poll last week found that 97% of blacks plan to double down on him in this election. Racial pride surely plays some part in these attitudes, as does traditional black support of Democratic presidential candidates over the past four decades. But another factor is the abiding belief among civil-rights leaders that political activity is essential for black upward mobility.

    Long after the passage of landmark civil-rights legislation, black leaders have continued to focus on integrating political institutions to redress social and economic problems. Demands for black access to the ballot have morphed into demands for “safe” black seats in Congress and “proportionate” representation among elected officials. Mr. Obama’s victory in 2008 was the ultimate realization of this thinking. The Rev. C.T. Vivian, a close associate of Martin Luther King Jr., told Obama biographer David Remnick that King was a “prophet,” and the “politician of our age, who comes along to follow that prophet, is Barack Obama. Martin laid the moral and spiritual base for the political reality to follow.”

    Photographer Unknown

    Riley goes on to illustrate how political involvement in America by German and Irish immigrants had little effect on their economic prosperity.

    Today, Asian-Americans are the nation’s best-educated and highest-earning racial group. According to a Pew study released earlier this year, 49% of Asians age 25 and older hold bachelor’s degrees, compared with 31% of whites and 18% of blacks. The median household income for Asians is $66,000, which is $12,000 more than white households and double that of black households. As with other groups, political clout has not been a precondition of Asian socioeconomic advancement.

    There are a handful of prominent Asian-American politicians today, including Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Nikki Haley of South Carolina, but Asians have tended to avoid politics compared with other groups. Between 1990 and 2000, for example, the number of elected officials grew by 23% for blacks but only by 4% for Asians. In 2008, Asians were significantly less likely than both blacks and whites to have voted.

    The election of Barack Obama four years ago gave blacks bragging rights, but bragging rights can’t close the black-white achievement gap in education or increase black labor-force participation or reduce black incarceration rates. A civil-rights leadership that encourages blacks to look to politicians to solve these problems is doing a disservice to the people they claim to represent.

    Asians, for their part, can point to an out-of-wedlock birthrate of just 16%, the lowest of any major group and a significant factor in Asian success. The black illegitimacy rate last year was 72%. Might it be that having a black man in the Oval Office is less important for black advancement than having one in the home?

    The political scientists tell us that Mr. Obama will almost certainly need every black vote he can muster on Election Day. Less certain is whether blacks need him.

    [emphasis added]

    I believe today, far more African American voters will join women voters in their support of Mitt Romney than the politicos expect. Democrats love to divide and separate Americans into groups and classes, patronize them, and assume they will not think for themselves. Not this time.

    Mitt Romney’s vision and plan will lift all Americans. African Americans and women will benefit far more extensively under President Romney by comparison to the failed policies of President Obama. It is a travesty that unemployment among women and blacks is at some of the highest levels in American history. Mitt Romney will begin to change that trend in January.

    Election Day! Obama’s Revenge or Romney’s American Restoration?

    It’s ELECTION DAY 2012!

    For Romney supporters, this day has been long in coming… and we’re thrilled it’s here!

    From sea to shining sea, for many, many freedom lovers, it’s going to be a nail-biting, nerve-wracking, back-breaking, whistle-while-we’re-working, NEW FUTURE-making day.

    Let the contest begin!

    David Limbaugh asks:

    Do You Want Revenge Against America or Loving Restoration?

    Mitt Romney was very wise to pivot on Barack Obama’s impromptu statement that “voting is the best revenge” and frame the campaign in the final days as a choice between that negative message and Romney’s “love of country.”

    I wouldn’t say that if I thought Obama’s statement was merely a slip of the tongue. Rather, I believe that in another unscripted moment, he once again revealed who he really is and the essence of his mindset.

    When his soul mate and spouse said that her husband’s ascendancy was the first time she’d been proud of America in her adult life, she wasn’t just throwing out words. She was telling us who she is and what kind of hang-ups she has about pre-Obama America.

    At the time she made the statement, she was on the stump representing her husband and speaking for him. They are of one mind on this point.

    Without revisiting all the evidence pointing to Obama’s grudge against pre-Obama America, we only need remind ourselves of his pre-election comment that we were “five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

    That was a chilling statement and unmistakable in its meaning. Obama didn’t like the America that currently existed, and he had ambitions not just to tweak it or implement a few salutary reforms but to fundamentally change it. He wasn’t just talking about getting the economy growing again after the financial meltdown. He was determined to implement structural changes across the board to exact “economic justice” and “social justice” — a pair of familiar lyrics from every leftist radical’s hymnal.

    Before Obama was elected, he barked bi-partisanship. Post-election, with a majority in the House and Senate, he rebuffed Republicans – bribing, brow-beating, and twisting many congressional arms to foist his pet projects on ear-splitting objecting Americans. After 2010 midterm elections, when Republicans took the majority of House seats, Obama failed to reach out, failed to lead, then falsely brayed about GOP obstructionism:

    In office, Obama has also betrayed his grudge-oriented mindset. He never really sought true bipartisanship. From day one, it was his way or the highway. Nowhere was this more striking than his dictatorial approach to Obamacare, which he willingly crammed down the throats of a dissenting American public. He was not a man who was leading America toward positive change but one who was forcibly imposing his radical will on America and completely unwilling to budge when challenged. “I’m the president.”

    Let’s also not forget that during his first two years in office at least, Obama did get his way legislatively. He passed his enormously wasteful stimulus bill, the Dodd-Frank financial reform fiasco and Obamacare, and he pushed through all kinds of green energy projects, attacked and greatly damaged the oil, coal and natural gas industries, expanded dependency programs, stoked racial and class resentments, downscaled our military forces, and otherwise spent federal dollars as if he were determined to bankrupt the United States.

    Obama’s failures have caused deep suffering for many Americans:

    After all of this, he has nothing positive to show in his record. The economy is still in shambles with no end in sight. Yet he has given us no specifics of what he’d do in a second term except more of the same. In his words, “let’s not turn back now.” Really? Not turn back from policies that are destroying our economy and bankrupting us?

    Economic results are not what he’s after, folks. He wants revenge — against an America he believes has been unfair and sinful in the past, a nation that has consumed too much of the world’s resources and been an international bully. And he’s now outright admitted he wants his voters to help him get that revenge.

    It’s a relief to be at this place, right here, right now. Today we’ll exercise the right to vote this manipulative, negative, inept, crony cash-slipping, grease-palming, arm-twisting, redistributing, money-wasting, lead-from-behind shyster out of the White House.

    We’ll be exercising our right to vote in the capable, confidence-inspiring man many of us have worked for years to put in the Oval Office. David Limbaugh describes him:

    Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is bullish on America. He’s proud of its founding and its founding principles. He loves and embraces its free market tradition. He is confident in the private sector and believes that the road to economic recovery lies in unleashing the private sector from the oppressive boot of the federal government. He wants America to be strong again.

    There is no question which of the two candidates presented the more convincing final argument. Romney is offering a positive future; Obama is assuring us continued failure. Vote — and pray.

    Revenge or love of country and restoration?

    Love of country and desperately needed restoration.

    R & R!

    Now, how do I calm the butterflies in my stomach?!

    Romney Can Right Listing Ship

    We urge our readers to cast their vote for Mitt Romney to be the next president of the United States.

    We did not endorse then-junior Sen. Barack Obama four years ago as we felt he was unprepared and lacked the leadership and real-world skill sets vital for holding the most important office in the world.

    Our fears were correct.

    Obama fell way short on his promise of hope and change. He learned the hard way, at America’s expense, that clever slogans and catchy phrases are no substitute for strategic plans that include party(s) buy-in, well-thought-out details, structure and accountability.

    Indeed, America stands at critical crossroads for her future on Tuesday.

    Mitt Romney is a former governor, a proven leader, with a successful record both in governing and in business. He understands the importance of free enterprise. He comprehends with perfect clarity that small businesses and entrepreneurs – not the government – are the drivers of a strong economy.

    Romney believes a robust economy is the key to alleviating poverty and helping people become more self-reliant.

    During this campaign, Romney laid out detailed plans for economic recovery, job growth and reducing the public debt, concepts painfully absent from Obama’s campaign.

    Romney promises to unleash America’s energy resources like never before, ushering in a new era of energy independence. And our region will benefit greatly from that goal. Romney will halt Obama’s premeditated efforts to crush one of our area’s most precious job creators – the coal industry.

    America yearns for a president who will unite us – not divide us.

    One with vision, who will inspire, uplift and motivate.

    America wants a president who will promote our national values abroad and not apologize for them – a leader who will hold up this great nation as the beacon of freedom that she remains.

    Gov. Romney is that leader, and we urge our readers to cast their vote for a stronger America, by electing Mitt Romney as the next president of the United States.

    Talk about exciting! If you live in Pennsylvania, click here to help. Anyone can help by making calls from home, too.

    Our Choice For America’s Future

    America’s heart, soul, brains and muscle — the middle- and working-class people who make this nation great — have been beset for too long by sapping economic decline.

    Paychecks are shrunken after more than a decade in which the workplace has asked more of wage earners and rewarded them less. The decline has knocked someone at the midpoint of the salary scale back to where he or she would have been in 1996.

    Then, the subway fare, still paid by token, was $1.50, gasoline was $1.23 a gallon and the median rent for a stabilized apartment was $600 a month. Today, the base MetroCard subway fare is $2.25, gasoline is in the $3.90 range and the median stabilized rent is $1,050, with all the increases outpacing wage growth.

    Our leaders owed us better than lower standards of living, and we must have better if the U.S. is to remain a beacon of prosperity where mothers and fathers can be confident of providing for their children and seeing them climb higher on the ladder.

    Revival of the U.S. as a land of opportunity and upward mobility is the central challenge facing the next President. The question for Americans: Who is more likely to accomplish the mission — Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?

    Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world’s toughest job. We valued Obama’s pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship.

    The hopes of those days went unfulfilled.

    The official unemployment rate stands at 7.9%, marking only the second month below 8% after 43 months above that level. Worse, add people who are working part-time because they have no better choice and the rate leaps to almost 15%. Still worse, add 8 million people who have given up looking for employment and the number who are out of jobs or who are cobbling together hours to scrape by hits some 23 million people.

    The regrettable truth is that Obama built a record of miscalculations and missed opportunities.

    R.I.P. and never to be resurrected — Obama’s promised bipartisanship.

    But those pluses and minuses pale in comparison with middle-class prospects in recommending whether to entrust Obama or Romney with the future.

    Romney’s approach is the stronger.

    Critically, he has tailored his policies to create jobs, jobs, jobs.

    The centerpieces of Romney’s plan call for spending restraint and rewriting the Internal Revenue code to lower rates by 20%. He would make up much of the lost revenue by eliminating deductions and loopholes that have made the tax system a thicket of strangling complexities. On its own, paring the personal and corporate rules to the basics would catalyze business and consumer spending.

    Romney has pledged that, as a group, the wealthy will bear no less a share of the burden than they do now, while individuals lower down would enjoy breaks. Many contest as mathematically impossible the Republican’s ability to cut rates and balance the books through tax reform. He disputes the points but, in an encouraging show of pragmatism, he has made clear that moving the nation toward balance may require sacrificing the size of his rate cut.

    Romney’s energy plan calls for reemphasizing oil and natural gas production, in a shift away from Obama’s tilt toward trying to develop wind and solar into workable alternatives.

    His proposal for Medicare would permit future retirees to choose between tried-and-true health care and private insurance to produce savings through competition. It took political bravery even to broach such concepts, and they are well worth exploring.

    Offering a rosy vision of a country already on the rise, Obama argues that he would lead a resurgence by staying the course. He posits that spending in areas such as education and clean energy would be beneficial, and he sees raising taxes on high-income earners as key to “balanced” deficit reduction. Each on its own is attractive, but the whole comes up short.

    The presidential imperative of the times is to energize the economy and get deficits under control to empower the working and middle classes to again enjoy the fruits of an ascendant America.

    So The News is compelled to stand with Romney.

    Two days ago, Governor Romney held a rally at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin fairgrounds early in the morning. The crowd was so large, they had to open up overflow areas. And all of it with “frosty” temperatures!

    You have to see this video of many of the women in attendance who spoke up for Governor Romney. Somehow, they didn’t get the message from Obama that Romney is waging a war on women! Click here to see the video:

    Rebel Pundit (what a great name for a reporter!) gives us this glimpse from the event:

    The energy was enthusiastic and upbeat for Romney supporters. Female voters spoke to me about the most important issues to them this coming Tuesday. The overwhelming response was jobs, the economy, and a better future for their children and grandchildren.

    Many expressed tremendous concern for their kids, who are already struggling to find jobs, even with a college degree. They also flatly rejected that there is a “war on women” which President Obama’s campaign claims is being waged by the Republican Party, Mitt Romney, and Paul Ryan.

    Attendees also felt strongly that the momentum is on the side of Mitt Romney.

    What a great honor for Governor Mitt Romney…

    Yesterday, 150 former prisoners of war (POWs) announced their support for Romney:

    I am deeply honored to have the support of these American heroes who suffered so much for our nation and her people,” said Mitt Romney. “Our military men and women are America’s best. They put everything—including their lives and their liberty—on the line for our freedoms. When I am president, I will honor their dedication and those sacrifices by ensuring that we maintain the strength of our military, provide the care our veterans need, and build an economy that gives every American the chance to live their dreams.”

    “Our nation’s most sacred commitment is to our men and women in uniform,” said Lt. Colonel Orson Swindle, USMC, (Ret.). “But for the last four years, we’ve been letting them down. Too many veterans come home without opportunities for good jobs. Too many of our wounded are seeing the cost of their medical care on the rise. We need new leadership in Washington. That’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. He not only appreciates the sacrifices the men and women of the armed forces make, he has the experience and the plan to turn this country around. He’ll make sure that none of our bravest come back from war only to face new and sometimes even more difficult battles at home. Our nation is hungry for that kind of leadership. Mitt Romney will provide it.”

    The Governor recently paid tribute to America’s prisoners of war and our military missing in action (MIAs) on National POW/MIA Recognition Day (September 21, 2012).

    Note: On Oct 17, 2012, Romney announced his Military Advisory Council. You must check out the amazing list of military members serving on his council, including retired General Tommy Franks, who said, “Governor Romney is committed to restoring America’s leadership role in the world. Instead of playing politics with our military, he will strengthen our defense posture by reversing the President’s devastating defense cuts. The fact of the matter is that we cannot afford another four years of feckless foreign policy. We need level-headed leadership which will protect our interests and defend our values with clarity and without apology.” DO read more here.

    Every name on the following list of endorsers for Governor Romney represents an individual story of enormous sacrifice and valor in the service of our nation. Each individual spent time imprisoned by enemies of the United States. They’ve lived through horrors I can only imagine. Each truly knows what it’s like to suffer for the USA. They see how the Obama economy is affecting returning soldiers and they’re concerned about our shrinking military, sequestration, care for older veterans, and are very aware of Obama’s ‘apology tour’ and his Benghazi cover-up. These POWs know what is at stake in this election. I’ve linked information to the first 10 patriots and the last 10. Copy and paste any name (include “POW’) and search the internet to learn more about every veteran listed. As you look over the list, take a moment to show respect for these American heroes by reading each name.
