A ‘sacred’ duty

If you want to really thank veterans:

If a government has anything close to a ‘sacred’ duty, it is the duty of caring for the men and women who went away whole, and came back less than whole, because that government wasn’t wise or smart enough to solve their problems better.

[A favorite high school teacher used to quote Asimov to me “Violence … is the last refuge of the incompetent.” And if war is the ultimate national violence, then it explains why the above rings so true.]
