Although the official, i.e. federal, observance will take place tomorrow, today is Veterans Day. It is the holiday established to honor those Americans who have served in our nation’s Armed Forces. The lack of leadership and unclear missions that characterize some of our current overseas military engagements-describing them as wars would be too inconvenient for some people-don’t diminish the sacrifices made by the men and women who have enlisted in the United States military. Sacrifices that that go overlooked by too many-including the hive of scum and villainy which nests inside of Capitol Hill-but not by the Patriot Guard Riders, as Robert Glisson reminds us in his guest-blog for Ilana Mercer’s website.
For those of you who want to assist those veterans that are returning home a little less than whole, I would like to recommend the Wounded Warrior Project, which seeks to help wounded veterans reintegrate into civilian life. I’ve donated to the WWP in the past, and will hopefully do so in the future. They do good work, and deserve to be recognized on this solemn occasion.
