    C’mon y’all, help an old vet out! I worked at the VA & loved it! Specially being a veteran. Once you Respectfully , yet beyond any shadow of doubt, let them know you served too, & you sincerely do your best, MOST vets are cool.
    These “kids” coming home are gonna need the best care they can get, & whether you’re a veteran or not, you can serve your country & be a hero to someone everybody else calls “hero”!

    (man, that sounded corny!)
