Chicago Teachers Union Forgets the Veterans on Veterans Day

Next time the Chicago teachers unions, or far as I am concerned, ANY of the unions (and most of the radical membership) need help of ANY kind of assistance from the military they can sit and spin. Veterans Day is a day set aside to REMEMBER and RECOGNIZE ALL of our veterans, living and dead. I take their abuse of the day as an affront to myself (USAF, Ret.), my father (USAF, Ret.; USArmy/Sniper/WWII), my grandfathers (USAEF/WWi), and all the rest of my relatives that have served, and the entire membership of veterans, both living and dead. I have no problem now of giving these unions a one finger salute when they need the aid of the military in any way! They have earned it!

Veteran's Day was the 11th, not the 12th.

True, but the losers in Washington and such can't claim a day off on Sunday, so they take it off on Monday! No one else in this country gets the day off, except for the most unproductive members of our society! Besides, to them, they don't really care that it is Veterans Day! Losers!

On Monday, November 12th (the observed Veterans Day), the Chicago Teachers Union organized a protest, not to honor vets, but to protest school closures. Ironically, all Chicago Public Schools were closed that day to supposedly honor military veterans who served our nation.

While the union forgot to bring American flags to honor those vets, they did have plenty of socialist, communists and other radicals in the ranks.


Judging by the resistance of union activists to answer simple questions, it’s unlikely EAGnews will be on the CTU’s Christmas – oops, we mean winter holiday card list.
