SENIORS AND THE NEW PATRIOTISM

Aug 26th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Reports indicate that the numbers of veterans committing suicide continue to rise. The finger of shame and guilt points to Veteran Affairs and a lack of attention to Veteran medical need. It is a sad and compelling indictment. The New Patriotism needs to be more than signing petitions and marching with placards. Today’s patriots need to be proactive in behalf of veterans and their families. Support systems that are not following their mandate to work in behalf of veterans need to be called to accountability.

A new patriotism is one that offers comfort, solace, support, intervention, and all kinds of active support for veterans who willingly serve, often many tours of duty.
