Well written article-Makes you think about the latest slogan that is in fashion: Hire a Hero-Ask any of them if they consider themselves heroes and they’ll tell you straight up that the heroes are the ones that never came Home. What they want is a damn job that doesn’t require tax credits to employers to have it offered to them/ See below-This is the cold hard truth stacked up against jingoism-I’m sick of these slogans and the onslaught of to little to late masking all of it. Stop w/ the slogans already and provide to them what a grateful Nation should-good jobs, medical and behavioral health care w/o regard to the ability to pay and a simple thank you for your service-tie the first two together and the last one will actually have meaning to them.
“And the cold, hard facts remain that, in the reckoning of the financial system, he is just another social security number bearing baggage. He is not a special case, not someone to be given lenience by dint of his experience, but rather a young man with tattered credit and no certain income potential”. http://huff.to/pCjqKA
