So over the weekend Dave and I attended 2 amazing events put on by the American Veterans Center, everything was first class! Last night was the final event, a Congressional Reception for OIF/OEF veterans. Sounds great, until the Congressmen and the entourages show up. I won't go into full detail but here are a few snippets from the mouths of our congressmen:
"Air Force? Really? Do they really get hurt?"
"Air Force? What do you do over there?"
"Air Force? Oh did your plane get shot down?"
Maybe your not aware, but not everyone in the AF is a pilot????
"Wow your leg is about is ugly as your face"
No kidding, someone actually said that to us!
"Oh did you get hit by one of those IUD's?"
Yes sir, those inter uterine devices are killing too many Americans over there.
Ladies and Gentlemen-Your Congressmen! I have so much to say and don't even know where to begin. Needless to say we left early, I was pretty mad about it last night but know I am just disgusted that these people obviously have no clue!?
