Veterans Day 2010: A Time To Remember
Today, November 11, 2010 is Veterans Day. A day to remember and honor our veterans. But, I think people should also stop and realize that we are fighting two wars right now, and that veterans are coming back from war and many of them are committing suicide. I believe the Federal Government has a responsibility to help veterans make the transition from military life to civilian life, and more needs to be done to help these men and women that have served our country in time of war. This should not be a political football that gets kicked around so politicians can try and score points with the voters. These men and women that fought in Iraq and Afghanistan need help, and every American should be for greater funding of programs to help these veterans make the transition to civilian life.
