Donald Trump made it clear over the course of the campaign that if elected, he would do everything in his power to take care of our veterans and fix the broken Veterans Affairs system that Obama allowed to plague our heroes for years.
This greatly highlighted the biggest difference between Obama and Trump. Obama had eight years to help our veterans and get them the care they desperately needed — but he didn’t care and he failed to do anything meaningful about it. But now we have a president that has great respect for our military and those who sacrificed their lives to keep us all safe.
Trump understands that without the brave men and women in uniform, we aren’t able to enjoy the many freedoms and opportunities they fought for. The most recent example of a veteran being treat horribly came when George Taylor, a Vietnam War veteran, experienced a disastrous situation that has many upset.
When friends and family went to the Heritage Funeral Home in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia to visit him, they noticed that Taylor’s body was not in a coffin. It was laid on top of a table with the American flag draped over him. The funeral home claims they weren’t able to put him in a coffin because they were waiting on a $9,000 payment to come out of Taylor’s life insurance.
The insurance company claimed they needed to see Taylor’s death certification before they sent the payment to the funeral home, but the check did not arrive in time.
“This is how his friends an (sic) family had to see him,” Elizabeth Moss, a close friend of the family, wrote in a Facebook post, along with a photo of the scene. “I am in total disbelief.”
