Doing more for US veterans
from The New York Times
The Memorial Day commemoration honors the 1.25 million Americans who have fallen for their country. It also affords an opportunity to show concern for living service members, active and retired. The picture is complex and contradictory. The U.S. military is more capable than ever, and well provided for despite threats of mindless across-the-board spending cuts under the so-called sequestration. At the same time, the armed forces are plagued by soaring suicide rates and rising incidents of sexual assault and worn down by multiple tours of combat duty. Conditions for veterans are similarly mixed.
