Veterans, politicians attend annual Veterans Day program at Ann Arbor VA hospital

By Courtney Sacco

The VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System along with the U-M Tri-Service ROTC held an annual Veterans Day program Monday morning at the VA Ann Arbor Medical Center. Governor Rick Snyder, Congressman John D. Dingell and Major General Gregory Vadnais were in attendance for this year's event, along with veterans and VFW members..

I'm not a Dingell supporter, but my respect for him just doubled as I did not know he joined the Army in WWII. That generation was definitely one of the greatest.

I guess veterans in wheelchairs lesson to gov. snyder speaks. And the event healed at the Ann Arbor VA. Does anybody, I mean ANYBODY freakin' proofread their articles anymore? I mean, these are just captions to photographs! Not even articles. Where is the pride in one's work? Augh!

Wow. Wow. Wow. I missed another misspelling in the caption of Dingell at the dais. It's ROTC, not "...Michigan ROCT members..."

Holy cut-and-past crapjob! EVERY caption has the word "held" misspelled! "...healed at the VA Medical Center..."

Wow, I thought you were nitpicking until I read the captions. Here's the caption of Dingell at the dais: "Congressman John D. Dingell speaks to the crowed of veterans..." That's pretty bad.

dog guy, what do you mean by "second great unpleasantness"? Are you mocking WWII Veterans in some perverted manner?

" Mocking " ? I'd call it a flat out slap in the face of the greatest generation, hopefully out of ignorance....To flip the coin I will assume the " first great unplesantness " is the current disrespectful bunch east of the beltway running the show...

Second Lieutenant Dingell came by his VFW hat honorably. There are so few veterans of the Second Great Unpleasantness still alive.
