Why Veterans should vote

Written by: Huey O'Neal

Why Veterans should vote

Veterans must Vote to make their voices heard in the political arena.

Americans (veterans) must vote to protect our liberties. Voting is required to protect our freedoms. Americans have the greatest country ever known in the history. Many sacrifices by the military and dedicated leaders in our government have made this possible. Our country offers more opportunity than any country. It is worth protecting. To maintain our values and freedoms, we must have strong military and dedicated leaders. There must be a strong participation in our political system to maintain our form of government by voting. Voting is the biggest weapon that the American citizen has to protect our constitution from foreign and domestic enemies.

The lack of voting leads to corrupt government. We must participate and choose our leaders careful to maintain our freedoms. Trustworthy and honest leaders must be elected to protect our Constitution and be responsible to the people.
Ben Franklin after the Constitution was approved is said to have told someone that the founders gave the American citizen a Republic: if they can keep it. He meant that everyone must participate in the political system and vote to keep the government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Everyone must accept their civic responsibility and vote on election day to protect our Constitution which gives us the greatest freedoms and opportunities in the world.

Veterans must participate in the political system to get their voices heard. Veterans served in the military to defend and protect the Constitution and now they must continue to do so by voting. Voting is the responsibility of everyone that loves our country.


Huey O'Neal organized a “Get out the Vote” project for the Louisiana post 13, the preceding paragraphs is an excerpt from that project. The American Legion magazine had a voting article in the October 2014 issue on voting which included post 13’s program.

Lets stand together with all Veterans and our Citizens alike and do our civic duty by voting this election!

I know I will be Voting!
