Although those that serve and feel they served with honor must ask if why they served was honorable.
As a Vietnam veteran that served early in that conflict I have learned that there was nothing honorable about that conflict. Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran are all examples of the same. These are instigated by old white men in air conditioned offices, sending children (I know "young man" is supposedly correct. I was a child at eighteen.) to fight for lining the pockets of corporate lobbyists and contractors for perceived threats to democracy. B f-ing S! These same greedy war mongers don't give a goddamn about the well- being of veterans.
Before you start throwing vitriol my way let me say that yes veterans deserve every consideration for becoming victims of this terrible machine. In the years since my war I have seen the VA become a shambles with huge delays and cost overruns, with no oversight.
I think it is a sad statement on the state of Veterans affairs to see, on network TV, a commercial for Wounded Warriors asking for $19.00 a month and they will send you a comfy throw. Though noble in the intent, it is the responsibility of the people that create this mess to take care of their victims. After all they are the ones with blood on their hands.
