It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the VETERAN who has given us freedom of speech. It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble. It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

When you think of American Vietnam Veterans, you think of the proud men who served, and lost their lives. But women also served proudly, and sadly...

We need to stop labeling and writing off our veterans because of their experiences. They are warriors who stand up to the worst evils in this world. And for that we should be grateful to them.

Remember the reason for Memorial Day. Thank a gold-star family, remember a veteran in your life, honor the brave who paid the ultimate sacrifice. -

This is wrong, we need to take better care of our vets... It is estimated that 67% of homeless men are veterans. 10/18/13
