Why do we force our vets to beg for money? Where’s our strong moral obligation as a nation to do everything Wounded Warriors does and more? These men and women sacrificed their lives for our nation.
These are commercials, not PSAs. WWP pays to get on TV. They are a business with a noble purpose… but that are a business.
I am a pacifist, nearly always against conflict. The wounded vets in these commercials are a large part of my reason. We do a piss poor job estimating this ‘cost’ of war. Then we play deadbeat dad.
I am embarrassed there needs to be a Wounded Warrior Project.
Understand, my beef isn’t with them. They should be the quarterback on the sidelines with a clipboard taking care of the few cases that fall through the cracks. This is America’s obligation.
It would be nice if this was the sort of thing we considered before we went to war.
