I myself am a veteran and discharged at a time when employers looked upon vets with gratitude. Then the political climate changed, and all of a sudden
vets became unemployable or were medically discharged after multiple deployments. Nowadays though, I see another change. Folks are waking up to
realize that they too have families, and odds are someone in your family or someone you know may be a service member. Society I think, is again seeing
that to have compassion towards our vets is the morally right thing to do, just like caring for the elderly and honoring social security. What people
do not realize is that many people join the service just to get a roof over their heads, a paycheck or to get off the streets.
People may not agree with foreign policy and why the government sends troops overseas, but don't take out your anger on the vets...
Thank you for standing up and helping out!
