to really support the troops, bring them home and restore them to their family, friends, loved ones and pets.
that’s the support they need the most and respect when they get home
not turned into homeless street involved people who have fallen through the cracks, their lives disrupted forever by not being able to unsee or unhear or unfeel what they experienced
and end up isolated, disaffected and disenfranchised
supporting the troops with military support is not the support they most need
rehumanization, self preservation mechanisms intact and mental health recovery support
that’s what I want for the troops
ask what your country is going to do for you -or for yours in the event that you do give your life – because when people are asked to do that….
well, even the families of suicide bombers get compensation from the organization they exploded in support of.
how telling is that?
don’t trade freedom for the appearance of security
freedom is measured by how much you can dissent, not by how many conform
