no... we should say screw you i cannot believe you served our country and then shun them. what kind of question is that?
The average civilian has no idea what war can do to a human being, to his/her mind and body, and as much as we, the general population, like to pay lip service towards thanking the troops and appreciating their service, the fact is that when they come home there are numerous challenges they face socially just trying to integrate themselves back into society and working a job if they decide to leave the service. Personally I think programs that help people get by with those things would mean a lot more than a parade.
No NYC Parade For Iraq War Veterans, Says Mayor Bloomberg. If the mayor of the most important city in America says that, its a problem.
Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. Thomas Jefferson
I have a better idea for you. Instead of parading, why don't you go and volunteer to work at a Veterans hospital. Or better yet, volunteer for the military yourself. You want to honor veterans? Become one!
