  •  Mike isn't gone. He's raising a ruckus among us (6+ / 0-)

    As long as there is a Veteran being badly treated, Mike's spirit will be there to provoke someone to provide help of some kind.

    I hope that Dorrie has shared with you and other veterans advocates his contact list. It's not just the people on that contact list, it's the jobs they held. Whenever you make that first call, say "I'm calling at the request and in memory of Mike Bailey."

    Salute, brother Mike! May you live on through the work of those you nagged, irritated, harangued, wore out, and inspired.

    Those who fought the war in Afghanistan won it. Get them out of Afghanistan NOW . . . It's long past time. The time has come to repair this country and care for its' veterans.

      I will get that contact list.....I will be sure and have her bring it when she comes.   She is definately coming and wait and see, she is looking forward to calling out some folks who don't get treated right !  She is a fighter and learned from the best.  
      She said she would be down the first sign of chilly weather up there... lol..She is tough !

      We the People have to make a difference and the Change.....Just do it ! Be part of helping us build a veteran community online. United Veterans of America

      •  um . . . sharing a secret Mike told me . . . (6+ / 0-)

        Compared to Dorrie when facing an obstinate or bureaucrat, indifferent health care provider, or someone just being an ass, Mike was a [CENSORED ] little kitty cat - or words to that effect.
