Booyah Veteran Bus Project

Richard McCuen

I am proud to be part of such a project. I am coming all the way from California because I was asked to answer the call. This is a prime example of what Marines do. This is not about us Warriors stepping to the plate to insure our Veterans are taken care of. This is about making things right, taking action not treating our Veterans as if they don’t matter. For years the Government has left our Veterans to deal with issues on their own. I cannot stand by and continue to allow our Veterans, ones who have protected this country and our way of life with this kind of disrespect. Our Veterans need proper assistance, not a hand out. As a Marine you are sworn to an oath to protect the weak and the innocent against deception, oppression and intimidation. I respect my fellow Veterans with Liberty, Equality, and Justice.

I have been through similar situations and can relate to the mental aspect that our homeless Veterans face. Lending my strength and heart to assist our Veterans that need just that, is my Honor. We must lead by example in this struggle to change the outcome of such an epidemic. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
