At a time when President Obama’s relationship with the military is already on shaky ground, his decision to take a vacation with his family in Chicago rather than pay his Memorial Day respects at Arlington National Cemetery further proves his apathy toward our armed forces, according to some veterans.
"The President seems to demonstrate almost weekly just how, at least to me, little he cares about this country and our history and our heritage," retired Marine Lt. Col. Orson Swindle told HUMAN EVENTS.
"He seems almost to resent it, which is the most mind-boggling thing in the world, because without a country like America Barack Obama could not be President. He seems to dislike our institutions . . . and that’s a sad, sad thing," said Swindle, a decorated Vietnam prisoner of war and Sen. John McCain’s cellmate in Hanoi.
