I am dismayed by the 'tone' of your letter.
It is impossible to achieve a cooperative effort for a worthy 'common cause' when, in the same breath, you insinuate wicked motives and hidden agenda.
It is pointless repeating history - is like digging graves. Instead, we owe it to the present/ future generations of Veterans to collaborate, in good faith. Sadly, I have not seen much of that, in recent exchanges.
Am I to believe that every time there is a pay revision we should await the condescending 'powers that be' to grant charity of modified parity, as in 5thCPC &indicated to you now OR should the ' principle' be conceded? Also, what about so many other inequities and anomalies???
It is time for new ldrship of Veterans move, and new directions, to emerge.
Our generation-both of us are 75 yrs or so - did what our 'lights' showed us-let the new order prevail; gracefully and with our full support and blessing. That is my sincere counsel to you and the like-minded.
