God Bless Our Military? Not At The Houston National Cemetery
biggovt ^ | 6/29/2011 | Michelle Lancaster

Posted on 06/29/2011 7:37:54 PM PDT by tutstar

Nik Rajokovic at Houston’s Channel 13 KTRH broke the story here.

This PISSES. ME. OFF.

I can barely get my thoughts together to type this post, but I’m not going to sit by and not speak up for those families who have lost a loved one and are having to now worry about submitting a written request for prayer to someone for approval. Last time I checked, this was the Home of the Brave and Land of the Free. Heads up, Director of the Houston National Cemetery. It still is.

Thanks to the Berry Brigade, here is how YOU can help STOP this disrespectful and unacceptable “requirement” put forth by the Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio. How dare she require families to submit their prayers to her in writing for approval?! Oh. And there’s more. And no bibles. And no chapel. Oh wait. The chapel was closed. Read on.

Here is the rest of it.. Let your voice be heard! Please call and write and stand for our military and their families in their greatest time of need! Their service and sacrifice is what allows us to do this and all things in freedom today.

Now. Call President Obama’s appointee, Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio at 281-447-8686 (extension 206) and tell her this will not be tolerated! The lines are busy, but keep trying.

THANK YOU to Congressman Ted Poe for already calling into the Michael Berry Show personally to support stopping this unacceptable action against religious freedom. He’s confirmed that this Director is in violation of the law and should be fired. AGREED.

**UPDATED** Congressman Poe has written a letter to the Secretary of Veteran Affairs demanding answers. God Bless You Sir!

Please also call the VA in Houston and Washington DC, along with your local Congressman. The phone numbers are listed below:

* Dept. of Veterans Affairs (Houston Office) 713-383-1999 * Dept. of Veterans Affairs (DC Office) 202-373-5400

Congressman:

* Sheila Jackson Lee (Houston Office) 713-655-0050 (DC Office) 202-225-3816 * Ted Poe (Kingwood Office) 281-446-0242 (DC Office) 202-225-6565 * Michael McCaul (Katy Office) 281-398-1247 (DC Office) 202-225-2401 * Kevin Brady (Conroe Office) 936-441-5700 (DC Office) 202-225-4901 * Al Green (Houston Office) 713-383-9234 (DC Office) 202-225-7508 * Gene Green (Baytown Office) 281-420-0502 (DC Office) 202-225-1688 * Pete Olson (Sugarland Office) 281-494-2690 (DC Office) 202-225-5951 (Clear Lake Office) 281-486-1095 * John Culberson (Houston Office) 713-682-8828 (DC Office) 202-225-2571

Be polite. Be firm.

Join me in telling each of the Congressman, the Director of the Houston National Cemetery and the Department of Veterans Affairs that they CANNOT treat United States military veterans and their families in this manner! We will win all “political” arguments by the force of our vote so please make calls to our Congressman today! In fact, if you’re not from Texas, bring this to the attention of your own Congressman and Veteran’s organizations. Think it can’t happen somewhere else? It’s happening in Texas and we must end it. Now.

Don’t leave it to someone else. You ARE someone else!

GOD BLESS America and GOD BLESS our military!

I’ve googled that woman’s name (Arleen Ocasio) and can’t really find out much about her. I bet she’s gotten some death threats by now. Gonna call my congresscritter tomorrow and ask him to look into having the VA give her the boot.

OCASIO SELECTED AS NEW DIRECTOR OF HOUSTON VA NATIONAL CEMETERY
Published 04/11/2010 - 6:21 a.m. CST

HOUSTON — Arleen Ocasio was recently selected as director of the Houston VA National Cemetery. In her new post, she is responsible for all burial, maintenance, and administrative operations at the cemetery. The Houston VA National Cemetery is the second largest national cemetery in the region, encompassing some 419 acres of a former dairy farm in northwest Houston.

Prior to her appointment, Ocasio was the first director of the new Jacksonville VA National Cemetery in Jacksonville, Fla. She was responsible for the initial development of the cemetery through its design phase, the cemetery dedication, consecration, and the beginning of burial operations in January 2009.

Ocasio was the director of the Puerto Rico VA National Cemetery from November 2006 and assistant director at Puerto Rico from July 2005 until her appointment as director. She has also held the position of cemetery director at Salisbury VA National Cemetery Complex in North Carolina, including oversight of Salisbury VA National Cemetery and its four satellite cemeteries in North Carolina and Virginia; at Natchez VA National Cemetery in Mississippi; and Fayetteville VA National Cemetery in Arkansas. She joined the National Cemetery Administration as a cemetery representative leader at the Puerto Rico VA National Cemetery.

For approximately 10 years before joining the National Cemetery Administration, Ocasio held various positions in the VA West Side Medical Center in Chicago, Ill., where she worked with minor contracts, maintenance contracts, and budget and was the Hispanic Employment Program assistant manager. She was also assigned to the San Juan VA Medical Center where she worked with administrative processes, purchases, and budget in the Nuclear Medicine Service.

Beginning her federal career with the Federal Aviation Administration in the Air Traffic Division in 1984, Ocasio is a native of Chicago. She graduated from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2000.

It might just surprise Arlene whasername, but most denominations in America don’t have “written” prayers. They are extemporaneous. So, if she wants to get in the business of creating a government religion that requires written prayers, then lets go after her on both the “establishment” PLUS the “free exercise” provisions of the 1st amendment.

Where are the Chris Mathews, Bill Maher, et al screaming about the separation of church and state. Congress shall make no laws.....and neither should the VA. I’m sure if there had been a VA Cemetery Administrator the Founding Fathers would have included it in the constitution.

I heard about this earlier today and I'm going to write my Congressman, John Culberson for starters.

I'm encouraged that Rep. Poe is already engaged in this. He's a great conservative who represents us well and gets things DONE.

Thank you for posting this thread.

If supposed Christians have threatened to literally kill Ocasio, well I don’t think the rest needs to be said, we all know it.

That doesn’t mean, of course, she — and whoever put her there — can’t be told to (figuratively) go to hell.

“Seems the Houston National Cemetery Director has ruled that grieving families cannot use the words “God” or “Jesus” at any funeral ceremony without her approval.” No Bibles, no Chapel, no speeches containing “God” or “Jesus.”

As an American citizen, it is our right to know just who the hell gave these orders to disrespect the rights of Veterans in this most personal way. “President Obama’s appointee, Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio” is merely following orders. I would imagine these restrictions, given on behalf of this administration, came directly from the Justice Department as part of an agreement (back room deal) with President Obama for her appointment.

As a Christian, these restrictions are just one slap in the face too many. Christians are tired of turning the other cheek, and then to be called right-wing extremists for our Conservative and religious beliefs. I don’t know about you, but both my cheeks are fairly bruised. I am probably not as nice about it as some, probably a fault on my part. However, it is time to call your legislators and demand hearings to find out (1) who created these restrictions, and gave the order for their implementation, and if all Veterans Cemeteries have been give the same set of restrictions. This is a gigantic insult to the “majority” of Americans. IN GOD WE TRUST!

WE THE PEOPLE will not stand for the removal of God or his only son, Jesus, from our lives! Don’t like that sentiment…then get the hell out of this Country or keep your mouths shut and allow us to live with God in peace.

It’s quite amazing the high ranking jobs she’s had without a degree and today an extremely high one and she only has a BA from Puerto Rico. Who does she know?

I hate funerals. I have been to exactly 3 in the last 50 years. I have passed on five times that many.

But I may reconsider, specially for military funerals. And I WILL bring a bible with me (never did that before!) and will participate in any and all prayers that mention God or Jesus Christ.

Come and get me!
