Put wounded warriors on list of groups to help

info@islandpacket.comNovember 5, 2012 

If anyone has ever looked at Fox TV and seen an ad for wounded warriors it is heartbreaking.

Once a month my parish sends out envelopes for donations for different charities. I have never gotten an envelope to help our wounded heroes, both men and women who have sustained major injuries in a hopeless war. It would seem our Catholic bishops are more interested in helping the illegal immigrants than helping disabled heroes who were willing to give their lives for our country.

Mexico is one of the 20 richest countries in the world, but our bishops would like the American taxpayer to assume responsibility and provide for our illegal residents before our fighting men and women. Anybody disagree?
