It’s one of the worse skeletons in an American closet full of them. The treatment of those men and women that have served in the U.S armed forces defies understand as many come home to anything but the respect due to them. Today as the nation observes memorial day, President Obama took a moment to touch on this sensitive matter.
“You came home and sometimes were denigrated when you should have been celebrated,” Obama said beneath a scorching sun at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. “It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. That’s why here today, we resolve that it will not happen again.” -Barack Obama
