Invited Guests At Veterans State Dinner About What You Would Expect

Posted by on Feb 29, 2012 at 8:50 am

I have been trying to gather some of the names of the veterans who will be attending the State dinner tonight with the President and while it has been hard so far I have found these 4.

SGT Nytayia Jamison (Marines) African American female finance clerk

Jason Hansan – Membership Director for IAVA

IAVA (Iraqi/Afghanistan Veterans Association) is a Democratic lobbying group made up of veterans. Yes there are Democrats in the military.

SSG Eric Alva (Marines) Hispanic First wounded service member and

Currently he is working with Democratic representative Martin Meehan of Massachusetts and a bipartisan group of representatives to Capitol Hill to reintroduce the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, legislation that would repeal the Pentagon’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy regarding homosexual conduct.[citation needed] Alva also served as the Grand Marshall of the 2008 Chicago Gay and Lesbian Pride parade held on Sunday, June 29, 2008.

Sgt. Alice Peacock who organized the Welcome Home parade in St Louis. She was not invited but is instead attending as a guest of Jason Hansan.

I do have a day job so researching others on the list may not be possible but you get the idea. By the way while this as heralded as hosting 200 veterans in actuality only 78 veterans made the list. The remainder of the people in attendance will be their guests and others deemed worthy by this administration.

    While he is giving the boot to about 100,000 troops to be released, increases the contribution of healthcare; allows combat pay ONLY when shot at; promises retribution for those involved in the koran burning; doesn’t even give those who return from Iraq a parade to honor their service and, sacrifice; ratted out our Seal Team 6 in the questionable Bin Laden killing – and then this phony invitation?

    This guy has no conscience, morals or respect for anything ‘military. He’s so vain!
