President George Washington stated: "The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportionate to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their country".
The Constitution Party of Ohio appreciates the contributions of our servicemen and veterans to the preservation of American freedom. We shall continue to recognize their contributions to the national welfare by supporting equitable pay and benefits to our military personnel, and generous health, education, and other benefits to veterans. We especially acknowledge the service of those who have served in combat, been wounded, or given their lives in defense of our nation, its liberties and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.
We therefore call upon both the U.S. and Ohio State Governments to provide for the adequate care of our service veterans, particularly those who have been disabled as a result of combat or other armed conflict in the defense of our country. We vigorously resist the attempt by any government agency to nullify or reduce earned benefits to veterans and their survivors, including but not limited to, compensation, pensions, education, and health care.
