    Exclamation letter to the president....

    BTY I checked it out n it is legit... Harold Estes




    Dear President Obama,

    My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

    I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

    One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

    So here goes.

    I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

    I can't figure out what country you are the president of.
    You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
    " We're no longer a Christian nation"
    " America is arrogant" - (Your wife even
    announced to the world,"America is mean-
    spirited. " Please tell her to try preaching
    that nonsense to 23 generations of our
    war dead buried all over the globe who
    died for no other reason than to free a
    whole lot of strangers from tyranny and
    hopelessness.)
    I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

    After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to her ideals."

    Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

    I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

    Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

    Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don't, I'll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

    And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don't want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don't mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don't want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

    One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you're the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you're not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you're thinking of.

    You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
    You're not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That's not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
    And I sure as hell don't want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

    Sincerely,
    Harold B. Estes

    well said mr. estes, i salute you and as a 13yr. army disabled veteran i wish i had your eloquence of speech and the wisdom of your age to put accros what you did in your letter. i had to fight the v.a. for 19yrs. just to get 20% service connected disability for the loss of l3,l4l,l5 disc in my back when in oct. 1986 a 68 lb. anvrc 46 radio fell out of it's mount and fell 3 ft. and hit me in the lower back. senators and congressmen said thanks for your service but there is nothing we can do. i had to write a letter to sec. def. gates in 2006 when all the walter reed issues were going on and sent to the white house before the v.a. even took x-rays or mri's of my back. the goverment does not appreceate all the people who served honorably had to endure just to recive care for injuries in the line of duty! again sir i salute you.

    I always hate to hear about things like this but there are a lot of us out here that appreciate you for your service to this great country. Even if the government and the VA doesn't treat you like it, He's one person that's thankful for men and woman such as yourself. Thanks you!
