Happy Veterans Day!!!

Update: News Flash, am I getting old or what? I kept thinking all day it was Veterans Day today in reality in the real world it is Sunday!!! OMG, am I getting old or what~~~hehehe....well we all will just celebrate today and Sunday!!!! No harm done other than I think old age is getting to me.......





Lets take a moment to remember our soldiers fighting for our freedom. Say a prayer
for their families, children, mothers, grandparents. Especially pray for their safe return
home, and an end to this war. Challenge yourself today to find someone in your hometown
who has served our country and thank them for the sacrifices they made. Have a wonderful
day and lets never forget the gift of freedom and the people who have or are making this gift possible. Have a blessed day!!!

We have a military veteran friend who was honorably discharged during the Vietnam era. He served in the US Navy while having dual citizenship (Canadian/US). He was born in Canada and his family moved to New York when he was a child and became dual Canadian and US Citizens.

After discharge my friend worked in the US for over 3 decades, paying US taxes and Social Security. When it came time to retire and apply for his pension he was informed that the US Department of Homeland Security had revoked his US citizenship and did not recognize his Canadian citizenship.

The Social Security Administration will not begin his pension payments until his citizenship issue is resolved. He has been trying to work this matter through the VA, his local representatives in government (congressional level) and directly through the Social Security Office. No one seems to know what to do, who should take action and who has responsibility. The DHS will not reply to his inquiries. Any ideas?
