Letter to the president

President Barack Obama in his Remarks at the 2012 Democratic National Convention speech said one thing which interests me and I will like to ask the same question if our men and women serving in the military stand out for this and the commitment by government.

Barack Obama said “I pay tribute to those who serve in arms work, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known when you take off the uniform, we will serve you as well because no one who serve this country should fight for a job or roof over your head or the care that they need when they come home”.

 The question I therefore ask is whether our men and women serving in the military, living their families for missions outside in the name and love for mother Ghana make out if the day comes when they take off their uniforms.

Do they get the care and support from government? 

Are they able to get a roof over their heads and proper health care after a long service in the military.

Ghanaian solders are one of the best on the African continent and no doubt that the world respects us. If I look at the smooth transition during the death of our President Atta-Mills, I only ask one question, can that same thing be said about our proud men and women in the military when the day comes when they take off their uniforms and if the answer is no then what is the government doing to about it?
