There are Trump veterans, anti-Trump veterans, and many veterans who don’t give a damn. There is no solid block, any more than in any other group. Those with things to sell represent us as a block when they wish to exploit us to help them make the sale. I am sick of being alternately ignored and exploited.

Only 7.3 percent of living Americans have served in the military and about ten percent of those have seen combat. I don’t need the other 93% to rush to defend my honor. My honor is just fine. And what do civilians know about honor anyway? It’s just a vague abstraction to them. Let them find someone else to exploit.

Thanks for reading my humble stuff, Benjamin.
