I’ve been cleaning house and listening to the Diane Rehm radio program on NPR – America’s Wars Observed
Guest host: Susan Page. Many discharged servicemen and women are finding no jobs like many that never left. It brings up questions. With the US medical staff shortage – why aren’t soldiers deployed in the medical corps not allowed to get quick certification for jobs at home? Homelessness of vets and their families are on the rise. Suicide rate of vets is also high. Seems like we all have to do more for our returning vets. They deserve to be treated like heros that they are.
