A Letter To Barack Obama From A 95 Year Old World War 2 Veteran

A Letter To Barack Obama From A 95 Year Old World War 2 Veteran 150x150 A Letter To Barack Obama From A 95 Year Old World War 2 VeteranA letter to Barack Obama from a 95 year old World War 2 veteran is causing quite a stir all over the Internet.  The name of the retired U.S. navy vet is Harold Estes, and KITV has confirmed that he did indeed write the letter.  Apparently someone in Florida sent it to Congress.org and ultimately it ended up getting out and spreading all over the Internet.  Estes reports that he has received about 1,000 calls about the letter and that the vast majority of them have been overwhelmingly supportive.

If you don’t think that your circle of friends has seen this letter yet, please send it out to them.  What this 95 year old World War 2 veteran wrote in his letter to Barack Obama is absolutely amazing.  You have to admit that his mind is still quite sharp after all of these years.  The following is the text of the letter that 95 year old Harold Estes wrote to Barack Obama….

****

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep 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 my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man. So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, 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 despicable lies like: “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 of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

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 that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

    Sounds like he hasn’t been keeping up with current events. Someone give the old man an enema and a Lunesta.

  • Roger Parris

    I too am a retired American Veteran of a more recent war. I agree WHOLE HEARTEDLY with Master Chief Estes. I would be proud to help this country back up his statements! Our Commander in Chief should be the strongest warrior in our arsenal against all enemies both Foreign and Domestic!

  • shill

    “Sounds like he hasn’t been keeping up with current events. Someone give the old man an enema and a Lunesta.”

    Yes and Mark the big mouth could surely use a frontal lobotomy as well. That is a great Idea lets round up all the Liberal retards ( Mark ) and start surgery ASAP.

  • Tom

    I was hoping for more criticism of the economic policies of Obama. Instead, I got nothing but Fox News talking points. What, no birther conspiracy rants about Obama’s citizenship? Pathetic.

  • Linda

    Tom and Marc you are the pathetic ones! Puh – lease speaking one’s mind and opinion in this great country is one of our rights that men like the Master Chief fought and died. I agree with him that Mr. Obama is NOT acting like a leader and needs to establish a clearer picture of what he wants and how he’s going to fund it. Finding fault with this country is not the way to do it!!! Hey Master Chief, maybe he should go to Senior Enlisted Academy for some leadership lessons?!?

  • Kate

    I would like to see President Obama’s response to this well deserved citizen who has served our country.

  • J.A.K

    I fully agree with this man, i don’t even like to refer to this guy livin in the white house, screwin up our nation, as our “president”. He should be leading us in the right direction as our “commander in chief” and not down the path of destruction and failure. If someone doesn’t stop him soon we will be doomed, not only individually but as a whole nation… he will be the one to let us ALL DOWN!

    and for all you dumb ass’s out there who stand by and watch it, your to blame just as much.

    *p.s. Tom and Mark yall are some of those dumb ass’s!

    As a USAF veteran of Vietnam, Chaplain/Captain, I too put my life on the line many times. When I came home in in 1970, I looked forward to the America I loved but was not welcomed back. IN fact, Mr. Obama, the opposite was : then I was demeaned, spoken ill about by protestors of that day, like the occupiers of today. Under Johnson and McNamara, both morons of the highest order, who sent countless men to their deaths because bombing the north was always off limits, now you–an inexperienced and feckless leader if ever there was one–once again are continuing the legecy of defeat by opening your mouth, blaspheming the flag, giving your crouch salute, etc. As you said in your HOPE book, “if push comes to shove, you will stand with the Muslims.” It is many of us loyal Americans who make it our #1 mission to give you especially, and all the other feckless politicians in Washington–of both parties not committed to restoring America to its grand place–a huge push out the door by NLT 2012.
    The momentum for your soon defeat is building and, like Japan, that tsunami will be at your front door soon. Then you, and your insolent spouse, can return to rag picking or carpetbagging. America then can restablisze from your committment to mire us in debt for countless generations. You have no idea how to lead because you are a traitor of the highest order to your office, the flag, and to all Americans, sir. The FED which you oversee, or should, just in 2011 alone, has “borrowed”/read “stolen”from U.S.Citizens 1.3 trillion dollars just in fiscal 2011 alone by borrowing 36 cents of every dollar spent. Despicable!

  • jack

    what do you think is going to happen if he is here for another 4years (hell) freedom we wont have we will be on our hands and knees just like in his country

  • Sandy

    Ok, Had to stop at write at Shill…ummm…Nazi much? Round people up and lobotomize them? Yea, Hey, ever think of a gas chamber…If that’s what calls himself “American” I’m out!

  • Miron

    Anyhow, carry on wing nuts. Old policies, old thinking, an old man. I’m sick of letting soldiers speak for me, hopefully eventually we won’t need them and war will be fought with technology anyway, once we get all the old dudes outta office and some new thinking in. What a great day when that happens! In the meantime at least when this old dude stumbles off to open fire on innocents (like alot of the military clones do) he won’t be able to see as well.

  • Elizabeth

    All i can say is at least there are still people out there who take the time to voice their opinion in the proper way. Not for fame or spotlight. I just wish i could get my young generation to follow suit.

  • dolly

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END ANYWAY. I DON’T CARE HOW MUCH WE TALK, AND HOW MUCH WE CARE ABOUT OUR COUNTRY AND VOICE OUR OPINIONS. EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND GOD’S COMING BACK TO ALL NATIONS. THAT IS WHEN I WOULD BE AFRAID. BE VERY AFRAID. WHEN THAT DAY COMES THAT NO MAN CAN DO ANYTHING. HOPE YOUR SOULS ARE READY TO MEET THE I AM, THE ALFA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND LAST, THE ONE AND ONLY, KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS. MR. BEAUTIFUL, MR WONDERFUL. STRONG, GREAT, POWERFUL, LILLY OF THE VALLEY, THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR, THE FARIEST OF TEN THOUSAND TO MY SOUL, THE BEAUTIFUL ROSE OF SHARON, HE IS ALL THE WORLD TO ME BUT BEST OF ALL HE IS MY COMING KING. HOW GREAT IS MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
