Not Every Veteran is Broken | Veterans Today

The wounds of Veterans, both physical and mental, are real and have widespread effects on Veterans and their families. I applaud the efforts of the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as private entities to help these men and women, and their families, on the long road to recovery. Not a day passes that I’m ungrateful for my health after four years in the Navy.

With that being said, I believe Veterans are a proud breed of Americans. We don’t like hearing “it can’t be done” or “that’s just not possible”. With limited resources, personnel, or funding, we were trained to make things happen. And we did. This instilled a certain pride in us that we can and will achieve the so called “impossible.”
