Writer Defends Letter Criticizing Gingrich
web posted January 20, 2012
First let me say thank you and congratulations to Mr. Pugh for his
service to our Great Nation. As you well know I will never attack the
character of or disrespect another veteran. It seems that Mr. Pugh
I only address him as mister out of respect for my elders and I don't
know or have ever heard of him. I was stating facts that I know about
He chose not to serve his country and has had three different wives. I
myself have been divorced, but not because I had an affair with someone
that worked for me and divorced to marry her Which Newt Gingrich did.
Also the other facts that I know about Newt Gingrich is that during his
tenure as a Congressman and Speaker of the House, Veterans benefits
were deeply cut and Veterans health care became one of the sorriest in
the history of the VA and millions of Americans jobs were lost because
these same politicians gave companies tax breaks and allowed the to
outsourced our jobs outside of the USA.
I am one of the many veterans who fought for and saw health care and
needs of all veterans improve. That has always be one of my
passions. To insure that all veterans received the care and recognition
that they deserve and earned. Secondly Mr. Pugh stated that Ron Paul
was drafted into the Air Force.
Unless the draft rules changed before in entered the U.S. Army in 1970
and served until 1979, the only services that anyone was drafted into
was either the Army or the Marine Corps. The Navy and Air Force only
took volunteers because they required you to serve a minimum of four
years active duty where as those drafted only were required to serve
two years which the Navy and Air Force did not allow.
Also understand there is a difference in a Vietnam Era Veteran
and a boots on the ground Vietnam Veteran which I am. Even though the
era veterans served during the Vietnam War they never left the USA and
were mostly REMF's. I know that it takes all fields of service to have
a complete military.
Yes I guess I'm a little arrogant in that I hold all military service
men and women in higher regard than I do those who refused to or would
As you also know I have never endorsed or supported any Political
candidate. I vote for who I feel will do the best job for al of
Americans and not just the party they serve.
I pray for Mr. Pugh that his misguided judgment will not cause Our
Country to fall further than it has already fall under the leadership
of such politicians as Newt Gingrich.
Remember what politicians helped Americans jobs to be sent outside of
I you are a true red blooded American, quit buying foreign made
products and only purchase items made in the USA.
May God Bless Mr. Pugh and forgive him for his blindness of the poor
moral values that Newt Gingrich possess. And that Mr. Pugh will get
involved in the improvement of our Community, State and Nation. To sit
back and do or say nothing is to condone their actions.
May God continue to bless The USA and guide us back to a moral God
