I wonder if retired/medically discharged soldiers are ever consider for high-level government security positions? It seems that they would be, given
they could properly perform their duties in a fully functioning mental and physical capacity.
Being disfigured in active duty is not something that would eliminate this homeland career opportunity. I do not know if this person was injured in
active duty or whether the possible injury was related to military service at all, but I imagine finding success in the Secret Service is quite an
achievement for someone who has endured the type of injuries that seem apparent in the video.
Personally, injured/former military personnel would be the highest priority candidates on my list. I do not find the presence of an
injured/disfigured security agent in the room with those government officials odd at all. In fact, this is one place I would expect to see injured
security agents, since the choices of those politicians are potentially responsible for the injuries in the first place.
I apologize for my difficulties in explaining what I mean to say...
...maybe this will help explain what I mean;
A football player dedicates himself to his team, when one day he is injured and unable to conitnue performing his duties. Being that football is the
thing he knows best, he chooses to continue his career in the sport, but in a different capacity. Whether he becomes a coach, a trainer, an
assistance, etc., you are still likely to see him on the sidelines...
I think that may be something like what we are seeing in the video.
If this person is a survivor of a terrible injury that has left them disfigured, I hope they do not have to deal with people constantly posting their
picture, pointing out their disfigurement, and calling them alien. I am not sure how I would feel if I realized people do not even recognize me as a
human, even though I sustained the disfiguring injury in military service to keep those same people safe - if the injuries were sustained the way I am
speculating they were.
Either way, a person with such a disfigurement must be very strong and brave, both physically and mentally, so maybe seeing people 'alienate' them
doesn't really matter to them...
