Listening to the Veterans, Signing Our Petition, & A Memorable Afternoon

On Monday, we attended a press conference organized by the State Department which included leaders of local veterans organizations and members of the international press.

As Raj circulated among the veterans, he listened to their concerns. Raj talked about maintaining a strong defense, protecting our flag, and ensuring they receive the health care they deserve. The veterans were very receptive. Their reasons included Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz’s votes against the flag burning amendment and their feeling that she has not been very supportive of their health care needs.

Many veterans signed our petition and posed for photos with Raj. It was a memorable afternoon.
