Re: “Idaho Says No to Final Resting Place for Veteran and Spouse

Dear Idaho I would like to chat with you about Ms. Madelynn Taylor (Add Military Id #) who served in the US Navy, has filed claim like other US Veterans, to be granted her last wishes to be buried at the Idaho State Cemetery with her beloved wife, her life long partner, Jean Mixner. Ms. Taylor has all the necessary paperwork needed (discharge papers, social security, and proof of residency). She has the necessary cash to cover all expenses, in order that she be allowed to Rest In Peace. God has allotted all of us so much time, and her time is near.

She has expressed her desire to take any actions necessary in order to proceed with her last wishes. The great state of Idaho has allowed thousands, and thousands of other Veterans to be laid to rest. It is Madelynn's, as well as her family and friends hope, and prayers that you allow her the same privileges as you have allowed for other veterans and spouses. Please do it now. She and her wife have been good citizens, and like your spouses, they have shared many years of happiness, and they have stood by each other through the years.

I plead her case, because I think she, like other Veterans coming home from serving the military, deserve so much more. Don't let us make further hardships upon our Veterans, the very soldiers who have served, those with disabilities, and those that have died. She took an oath, and we should live up to the promises we have made to them. Please don't make her beg. Our state flag, our nation's flag should fly over every veteran's burial in this country. Do not insult our Veterans. She doesn't ask to break your laws. When the president calls for brave men and women, she was hasten to serve with the troops willingly, she came forward. Idaho, please come forward with her, be fair, as you would want your family member to be treated, do not allow emotional, verbal or physical suffering. Do not disgrace our nation, I say, let the flag fly over her gravesite at the Idaho State Cemetery. We can enact laws now, granting our brave patriotic men and women, and place it within their reach to have everlasting peace. Let me go down and my knees, and beg you to assist her in the Country she fought to save. Do not break the faith with our veterans. Do not pit veteran against veteran. If I have written anything out of the way, or disrespectful, I beg your pardon.
