When veterans arrive home they need to return to some semblance of normalcy. Currently, America is remaining in a constant state of flux with even those who stayed behind experiencing anxiety as businesses and jobs hang in the balance. We find transparency in Washington turning into lunacy with each revelation from the White House. Consequently, we need to let our fighting men and women know that there is a war on two fronts! Over there...and right here in America. It is time to trade weapons. All Americans need to move seamlessly from brawn to brain while combating the crisis at home...starting at becoming penpals with our elected officials and ending with the ballot box. We need to stand up, speak up, and chastise politicians who slip up! WE THE PEOPLE need to know that this is a ongoing mission and no time to "stand down". America isn't what it use to be...we have had a series of setbacks...but it can be even better with everyone's help. Our veterans left for a noble cause... they should return with a flourish of validation that it was not in vain.
Note: Warriors who leave for a noble cause need to have it validated upon their return.
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
