95 year old hero! Letter To Obama at WhitehouseSent from 95 year Old Pearl Harbor Hero/Survivor. WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out! This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii forhis seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations andcausesall over the country. A humble man without a political bone in hisbody,he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now.Hedictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to thepresident. Dear President Obama, My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 ofthis year. People meeting me for the first time don't believe myage because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, duringandafter WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos'n Mate. Now I live in a"resthome" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me tokeep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country. One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak mymind,blunt and direct even to the head man. So here goes. I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before Ido,but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish. I can't figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicablelieslike:" We're no longer a Christian nation" " America is arrogant"-(Your wife even announced to the world, "America is Mean-Spirited. "Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations ofour war dead buriedall over the globe who Died for no other reason than to free a Wholelot of strangers from tyranny andHopelessness.) I'd say shame on the both of you, but I don't think you like America,nordo I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obviousgifts this country has given you. To be without shame orgratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the WhiteHouse. After 9/11 you said," America hasn't lived up to her ideals." Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from theBritish? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave toanother man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope youdidn't mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lotoffellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt realstronglyabout not letting any nation push us around, because we stand forfreedom. I don't think you mean the ideal that says equality is better thandiscrimination.
