All Americans should be thankful to US Veterans who serve in the US Military. US soldiers defend our country and risk their life to protect us and our families.
I believe that we need to take better care of our soldiers while in the military service and then connect support when they leave the US Military and become Veterans.
I would like to focus on socio-emotional, career, job, healthcare, and housing support for US Veterans. Standing with US Veterans is being patriotic.
