I'm not sure we really do that much better Mr.Badger.
Currently in America, there are eight thousand
homeless vets who are women. Too often the public forgets that women serve in the theater of war as well and they do sacrifice their lives for it. I'd bet these veteran women of foreign wars, and the men, would far rather have some meaningful help given to their readjustment than a parade. The parade would be nice, and we do them here. But too often, once the fanfare has died down, the public loses interest in what happens to them next.
Wether you agree with the war or not, I fully believe in being appreciative of those who risk their lives in service to their country and its citizens. A big, cheery parade is a good start but shouldn't be the end of those citizens interest in these men and women
