GAGOP Veterans Chairman Mrozinski Statement on Obama’s Visit to Fort Stewart
ATLANTA – Today, Georgia Republican Party Veterans Outreach Chairman Colonel Larry Mrozinski USA (RET.) released the following statement regarding President Obama’s campaign-fueled trip to Fort Stewart:
“At a time when nearly 900,000 veterans are awaiting answers on their disability claims, countless troops are facing layoff due to the president’s indefensible military cuts and the veterans’ unemployment rate is in double digits – with women faring even worse – the Commander-in-Chief has been anything but an advocate for our service members and veterans over the past three years. Now more than ever, our veterans are subject to the same empty rhetoric from the Obama Administration, only to see something entirely different when the promises to our veterans are called due.
“It is ever-more clear to veterans across America that Barack Obama considers his role as Campaigner-in-Chief far superior to that of Commander-in-Chief. This is an election year, however, and our military can expect to see plenty of him now. Simply put, our veterans, active service members and the families that support them deserve far better than to be relegated to being convenient campaign backdrops.”
