Wounded warriors

Dear Editor:

Most of us have seen appeals on TV for donations to support “The Wounded Warrior Project.” Their mission, as stated on their website, is to provide “programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.”

There is certainly an absolute moral imperative for us to provide these wounded warriors all of the best medical care available and to make certain they are not suffering financially because of their injuries. We cannot ignore these appeals nor fail to appreciate the Project’s service, but it is difficult to understand why there is a need for The Wounded Warrior Project. When we see all the money wasted by our government on bailouts, solar energy, wind energy, etc. plus the very lavish lifestyle and many lavish vacations of the Commander in Chief, how can it be that our severely wounded service people are in need?

This is just another glaring example of totally misdirected priorities in our federal government, not a lack of money.
