ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I am trying to understand our government’s priorities. I was very disturbed to read in Audrey Hudson’s “Veterans’ GI Bill tuition checks AWOL” (Nation, Sept. 24) that our government has neglected its responsibilities delineated by the GI Bill. It is a disgrace that we are not honoring our commitment to the men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything for us.

Our government has found the money for projects such as a $2 million study on swine odor in Iowa, $25 million to clean and paint the bridges in New York and $400,000 to give to the family charities of Moammar Gadhafi, but not for our veterans who have served so honorably and bravely. There are many programs that the government funds that are difficult to justify, but the GI Bill is certainly one we can all support and prioritize. The pigs and bridges can wait a little while; our veterans can’t.
