    I am a proud
    naturalized American
    citizen who came to
    the United States with
    $400 and worked for
    my entire education, from high school to
    graduate school. I
    have benefited from
    the generosity of
    many Americans who
    helped me along the way. As part of my
    commitment to give
    back to this great
    country, I became a
    volunteer at a
    nonprofit to support veterans and
    servicemembers. Since
    the group's founding,
    we have sourced,
    packed, and mailed
    close to 150 tons of care packages to our
    troops in Iraq and
    Afghanistan. We have
    many Vietnam
    veterans in our group
    who are leading the way. We have an obligation
    to our returning
    veterans, especially
    the severely
    wounded warriors.
    We must not lose sight of this obligation to
    our men and women
    who sacrificed their
    lives to defend our
    freedom. I hope all Americans
    will pledge a lifelong
    commitment to
    looking after our
    veterans from Iraq
    and every war. Let’s not play partisan
    politics in Washington
    when it comes to our
    country’s obligations
    to our veterans,
    especially to the severely wounded.
    We may lead busy
    lives, but please
    remember that their
    injuries and needs will
    be lifelong. We can not let them and their
    families down. As
    veterans come home,
    our true responsibility
    is just beginning. I sincerely hope
    President Obama will
    lead the country, and
    Congress, in making a
    commitment to
    support the severely wounded for life.
    Maybe with the
    realization of this
    lifelong responsibility,
    it will make our
    leaders think twice before we are led into
    another war and
    place our men and
    women in uniform in
    harm’s way. God bless our soldiers.
    God bless their
    families. God Bless
