Thanks for the reminder.
Let’s also remember those who returned and are being treated at VA facilities. They are entitled to the best medical treatment money can buy without having to jeopardize their health waiting to be seen. This is one entitlement or Government seems to have overlooked.
Let’s also remember the ones who didn’t die but came back damaged, both physically and mentally. I just read, “They Were Soldiers: How the Wounded Return from America’s Wars: The Untold Story by Ann Jones. Very illuminating; very painful.
