Why Veterans are Important!

Updated: Dec 13, 2020

So, as I continue to work with veterans and write these articles, the topic of why veterans are essential to our nation’s history and future continues to surface in conversations.

Veterans have always kept our country in check. No matter what the branch of service, veterans have been deployed anywhere in the world to defend our great nation, and we have lost millions of veterans who deserve a lot more credit than our society gives them credit. Giving credit to veterans has changed dramatically over the years, as you may very well know. Veterans returning from the Vietnam war were not treated well, so little, to no credit for their sacrifice, for our freedom, we gave them almost no credit until it is too late for them to receive it.
