I am a 100% disabled veteran I wear a baseball cap says Purple Heart combat wounded I also have an American flag on it for some reason people believe that if you have an American flag that you voted for Trump I didn't vote for either one of them but I have been assaulted twice already and had to use my cane for protection so I am applying for a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida but I have to get this misdemeanor expunged from my record for I can submit a request because my last request came back showing that I had a misdemeanor on my record in the city of Chicago on March 25, 1971
