Kristofer Goldsmith is an Iraq War Veteran who has been an outspoken advocate for better treatment of Veterans returning from Iraq and to bring this War to an end. John McCain & Peter King, Kris's Congressman, has refused to speak with him, even though IVAW has spoken with Barack Obama and numerous other congressman who don't represent him and has testified on Capitol Hill.

Call Peter King (R), 516-541-4225, and ask him why he refused to speak with Kris and fight for the veterans he claims to support.
Ask him why he lies on his website:

Congressman King has always been a strong supporter of our Armed Forces.  Pete has traveled to battle zones in Iraq and Bosnia to meet with our troops and has consistently voted to improve their benefits, including a 41% increase in soldiers’ pay and doubling enlistment bonuses in the past six years.  Pete has also supported improving health care coverage for National Guard and reservists and has voted to increase veterans’ health care benefits by record amounts.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
