Did you know that the starting pay for a cadet (a private) in the California Highway Patrol is $5,717.00?
Did you know that as of 2017, the starting pay for a private in the United States armed forces is only $1,633.50?
Did you also know that the starting pay at McDonalds, Burger King, Jack in the Box is $1,920.00 per month?
So why the difference in pay?
Why are our veterans only receiving the same pay as an employee at McDonalds, Burgers king, or Jack in the Box?
Did you know that since establishing the California Highway Patrol in 1929, only 226 officers have died in the line of duty?
Did you know that since 2003, at least 268,000 veterans have died in the line of duty?
So what career is more hazardous?
Too, every night a California Patrolmen and an investigator with the Federal Bureau of investigations goes home to their family and sleeps in a nice cozy bed with a roof over their head.
Yet often our veterans may not see their families for up to a year or more, and never have a roof over their head.
More frightening is the question: why is it that we live in a Country that requires its citizens to raise money to help disabled veterans?
Isn't the full and complete care of our veterans the responsibility of the President and the nation that asked our veterans to lay down their lives for the Country?
If you care and want more for our veterans, please join our in our efforts to reward our veterans by ensuring equal pay, and equal benefits. Too, we are looking for like minds. If you are interested in being a part of our efforts as a volunteer helping to broadcast information, help with publications, and writings, and various other duties, please email me with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Please note. The petition that we will eventually send to the President and those of the Senate and Congress will reflect primarily that which can be reviewed at OUR GOALS. However, until we have heard from each and every individual who signs this petition what they feel that message should be, our PETITION will be in a constant state of change. Only after we have reached 100,000 signatures, will we send out a draft for your approval and eventually the final PETITION. In the meantime, thanks for your help and support. And if you have ideas, please don't hesitate to write us with them.
