Thank a vet by donating to The Wounded Warrior Project or another worthy cause that serves those who have served.
Better yet, the next time a politician wants to get his war on, using bellicose language and beating war drums, stand up and tell him to STFU.
Beware those beating war drums who have never been to war.Wars don't just kill people. They cause much more damage as well, most of it permanent. Divorce, mental trauma, physical disability. The cost is high, and it needs to be paid when America is in grave and imminent peril, but the bar must be set high. Higher than congress set it for George W. Bush.
And if we must go to war, then we go General Sherman on their asses or go home. Our fighting men and women deserve no less.
The final way you can honor our veterans is to ask your congressman and senators why we are still in Afghanistan, propping up Ali Baba Karzai and his 40,000 Taliban thieves, and training and arming pigs and cockroaches who kill our troops.
