Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day, let's remember the service of all our soldiers and veterans. 

And, as we let their food assistance shrink, and block efforts to give them employment, and hinder efforts to process a backlog of disability benefits, let's hope that some future generation of Americans will once again embrace the idea of a common good and give the proper amount respect to the men and women who have served our country.

  1. Veteran’s day is a great way to remember and honor the people who sacrificed a lot just to protect the country. But it would be better, if they are able to get the benefits they deserve, so they can still live a comfortable life with their family even after their service to the country.
