To have veterans supported by actions not words.
  •  What they need to do is stop with all this traditional and non traditional BS. A Veteran is Veteran and if your injured in service of this country be it in war, peace keeping, training, or day to day duties they deserve to respect and support they have earned. I served 25 yrs and I have nothing but respect for those who served in the great wars, but I also have nothing but respect those who served during my time as well. If you have put on the uniform and suffered any kind of injury be it physical or mental no matter what generation, then you deserve the support that all Veterans should be getting. Yesterday at 2:19pm · Like
  •  Joe Hueglin work for CPC much what a load of BS all these programs can be broken apart by asking vets just how much help they have recieved. Take the dipper away from the blue cool aid and step back from the brainwashing.

Gordon Lightfoot / Home From The Forest

Oh the neon lights were flashin'
And the icy wind did blow
The water seeped into his shoes
And the drizzle turned to snow
His eyes were red, his hopes were dead
And the wine was runnin' low
And the old man came home
From the forest
His tears fell on the sidewalk
As he stumbled in the street
A dozen faces stopped to stare
But no one stopped to speak
For his castle was a hallway
And the bottle was his friend
And the old man stumbled in
From the forest

Up a dark and dingy staircase
The old man made his way
His ragged coat around him
As upon his cot he lay
And he wondered how it happened
That he ended up this way
Getting lost like a fool
In the forest

And as he lay there sleeping
A vision did appear
Upon his mantle shining
A face of one so dear
Who had loved him in the springtime
Of a long-forgotten year
When the wildflowers did bloom
In the forest

She touched his grizzled fingers
And she called him by his name
And then he heard the joyful sound
Of children at their games
In an old house on a hillside
In some forgotten town
Where the river runs down
From the forest

With a mighty roar the big jets soar
Above the canyon streets
And the con men con but life goes on
For the city never sleeps
And to an old forgotten soldier
The dawn will come no more
For the old man has come home
From the forest
