I’m not trying to make a political statement here, only note the fact that America’s ongoing wars have been considerably up front in the news of late, due mainly to the end, as it’s being called, of combat operations in Iraq. I just happened to be at the huge car show in Auburn, Indiana, a couple of days after that announcement. My eyes and lens were irresistibly drawn to this.
Somewhere underneath the decoration here, a description I say proudly, is what looks to be around a 1983 or 1984 Pontiac Parisienne. I’m pretty sure the affable gent in the blue striped shirt is its owner. All that decor serves up a message to preserve and extend health care for returning combat veterans in and around Fort Wayne, Indiana. The absence of long-term care and housing for America’s veterans is, shall we say, an inconvenient truth. This guy deserves an attaboy. I’m pretty sure the silver markings on the Pontiac are signatures from combat vets who have signed on, literally, to his campaign.
