Garland wants to help Veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress!
Garland is a Korean War Veteran and the first thing he wants every soldier to know is that “America has many people who care passionately about Veterans”. He feels like most Veterans feel as if they are forsaken & they feel like their country doesn’t appreciate their service and he wants that to change!
Most everyone that you talk to these days will all say that America could do a better job of taking care of those who protect the FREEDOM of our nation. Garlands says “This is a chance for “We the People” to show them we care.”
His idea is to ask members of Congress to initiate a Bill that would allow the government to produce; a commemorative coin, savings bonds and a new postal stamp that would all bear a design of the Tomb of the Unknowns. He wants the proceeds generated from the sale of these items to go to helping fund additional services & benefits for Veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress.
On the pages of this website you will find the Cities and Towns across America who have joined with him to gain the attention of Congress. Each of the Towns or Organizations stated have formally adopted resolutions of support for his project. Collectively, based on numbers compiled from the internet, these towns represent over 4,500,000 Americans. Not to mention, he has collected thousands of signatures from individual Americans from all over the country through his website and in person.
Garland has spoken to many Congressional Leaders but for some reason he still has to convince them to listen. He shares this idea with everyone he meets on the street. This project is 7 years in the making; Garland regularly phones: Former Presidents (some of which he has met), current members of Congress, State Governor’s and local Mayors – most all will say they support it. He will tell you “New politicians promise their support” and “Past Politicians have all failed to act yet Veterans still suffer”. He is on a personal mission to see that he leaves this world a better place than he came into, he needs your help in making this a reality. His idea has come a long way over the last few months but there is still a long road ahead.
