Veterans Day after Election Day feels a little different to me. The Boss is a veteran as were both of his parents. He is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute — a hard place to be but a good place to be from.
Every veteran in America is in a better position today than they were on Monday. We have a chance that the Veterans Administration will get sorted out and that we will have a Commander-in-Chief who will actually respect and act on behalf of veterans other than on Veterans Day.
I should have a lot more to say but that about summarizes it.
Our country was created at the point of a bloody bayonet. Our freedom was not granted to us; we took it. That’s who we are and who we will always be. Our country has been free since then because men and women have been willing to go in harm’s way to protect that freedom. The Boss did his part.
George Orwell got it right:
People Sleep Peacefully in Their Beds at Night Only Because Rough Men Stand Ready to Do Violence on Their Behalf
God bless our veterans. God bless our country. God bless President Trump.
Now, let’s fix the damn VA.
