Combat PTSD Wounded Times
November 10, 2017
Tomorrow is Veterans Day, but if you think about it, they are veterans everyday of the year as well. We fail to see the difference between them and the rest of us.
It is about time the rest of us delivered some fact-redemption.
Football players think it is ok to take a knee during the National Anthem. Others can't understand how it insults the flag, the troops and all those who served this country. Guess they never heard the words to the Anthem, or read that it was written as a tribute to those who defended this country. The Star Spangled Banner was "Written by Francis Scott Key on September 14th, 1814."
War of 1812
In the War of 1812, the United States took on the greatest naval power in the world, Great Britain, in a conflict that would have an immense impact on the young country’s future. Causes of the war included British attempts to restrict U.S. trade, the Royal Navy’s impressment of American seamen and America’s desire to expand its territory. The United States suffered many costly defeats at the hands of British, Canadian and Native American troops over the course of the War of 1812, including the capture and burning of the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.,Then again is seems as if most need a history lesson considering what has been passed off as "all there is" to know about what they want to share. Veterans don't need a history lesson on PTSD, since it is because of them the book itself was written.
