"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

A fund was set up to ensure that those heroes were always taken care of for the rest of their lives as they suffered through their final years.
