COLUMBUS, Ga. —
State Senator Ramsey has stated that there is no evidence that veterans want to see Georgia Senate Bill (SB) 419 revoked.
This is the bill that allows the state to place PTSD on a veteran’s driver’s license.
I am confused that the senator now requires evidence. He did not ask the State Commissioner of Veterans Affairs or any of the chartered veterans’ organizations throughout Georgia for input before submitting SB 419.
The bill was passed without a hearing, at the request of four unidentified veterans who represented only themselves.
If you are a veteran and do not wish to have PTSD placed on your driver’s license, please ask your state senators and representatives to contact Charlie Knox, adjutant, at the American Legion Department of Georgia to find out how Georgia veterans truly feel about NOT having this stamped on their driver’s license. If you prefer, you can email Mr. Knox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failing that call the Georgia Department Headquarters of the VFW at (478) 474-3737, or the DAV at (478) 972-5024. Ask for their adjutant. They’ll give him an ear full.

A tree house for the Smithsonian? Just a thought
There’s a danger as we get older to become “old fogeys.” I’m not sure what a “fogey” is but I think it’s a polite word for something else, relative to flatulence.

We’re inundated with self-help experts
Several years ago I wrote a column about self-help books. I had been in a large book store and there was a whole section devoted to books that are supposed to help one overcome a wide array of shortcomings. Well since then, it seems the self-help sections of book stores have grown immensely.
Their behavior seems somewhat hypocritical
Our state legislators are at it again.
Senate Bill 98 will prevent abortion coverage under any state or federal healthcare plan in Georgia except for a medical emergency. Apparently there is no exception even for rape or incest.

Where is accountability in regard to vet benefits?
Our legislators have no qualms sending our men and women in uniform into harms way. We who served and those who continue to serve do what is expected in service for our Country, even if it means the giving of our life. Eventually we become Veterans.
