Support Our Troops

On this day to honor our fallen heros, I offer a few ways that we can support our troops:

  1. Bring them home — responsibly.  Where we’ve caused harm and instability, we have an obligation to do what we can to clear the wreckage we have brought.  Where Iraq and Afganistan need and want our help, we need to offer it.  But where our “help” isn’t wanted or needed, we need to make an orderly departure.
  2. Honor our commitments to care for those who have been wounded (physically and emotionally) and the families of those who have fallen.  Increasingly, the wounds are not apparent at first glance, but are equally debilitating.
  3. Treat all those who serve with the dignity and respect they deserve.  Don’t damn those who serve faithfully with the mistakes of their leaders.
