Veterans Day

November 10, 2017

The usual spiel for Veterans Day is "thank you for your sacrifice." This isn't sufficient. I want to say that I'm sorry. Our government puts our troops in danger on a daily basis for lots of reasons that aren't protecting Americans, and a lot of those reasons are for the personal benefit of the politicians in control of the military. A lot of vets join the military so they can have access to college and a future.

Our politicians will never agree to give those same people access to higher education without putting their lives at risk, so I say I am sorry. It is not fair to any of you that you have to go and fight for some oil baron's bottom line, or to oust some foreign leader causing business trouble for our wealthy elite, just for the chance to have a fair shot at work.
