I wish I could say I lived in a country that truly valued and supported its veterans; but apart from some lip service paid to the troops, that isn’t the case. Christy at FDL nails it; head over there and check out her post. And since one out of every four homeless people is a veteran, perhaps consider donating to your local homeless shelter today. It’ll be a lot more meaningful than just waiving a flag.
To those who have served, thank you.
