Secretary Of Defense Ashton Carter makes a point on this Columbus/Thanksgiving Day about thanking the troops who protect & serve in their different military services. This is a sign of respect not just to the troops but their families as well. Something sadly lacking up here as both Tory & now Grit administrations are doing all they can to shaft vets on pensions & benefits.
"You are what makes ours the finest fighting force the world has ever known. It's our people. It starts with our people."
