Letter to the Editor: Medicare eligible Military Retirees are dying off

Dear Editor,

Considering the fact that Medicare eligible Military Retirees are dying off at the rate of 1000-1500 per day we might be better served by our government by insisting that we be given the legal protection of the Federal Endangered Species Laws. The Endangered Species listing can be found at http://endangered.fws.gov. This listing does include mammals, so we could certainly be included in that group, and in view of the rapidly dwindling numbers of Military Retirees, we should have no problem qualifying. Being added to the Endangered Species list would also qualify us for our fair share of the "Pork" Congress so readily attaches to it's numerous bills. This action would serve to satisfy us, the United States Congress, and the President.
