Government Trick or Treat?
Greg avoids watching the news, so he was surprised when DaElmersBack told him about disability checks for veterans being cut off on October 17, when the U.S. will hit its borrowing limit. “He says he depends on that check and without it he will need to make changes,” DaElmersBack said. “With two tours and many years of service he like many other veterans across the country will lose his benefits.”

This Veteran is displaying his American Flag upside down in Iron Mountain, MI in protest of what is happening in Washington, DC. He had literally just learned about the disability checks being cut off beginning Oct 17 ( I told him). He says he doesn't watch the news and didn't know. He says he depends on that check and without it he will need to make changes. With 2 tours and many years of service he like many other veterans across the country will lose his benefits.
Greg told me he will believe this when he see's it.. He has had his flag upside down when congress started ignoring America.. Many Americans across the country are mad and upset and now sadly many veterans too will be stressing and struggling when they shouldn't be.
