I love that we as a nation pause to acknowledge our pride, debt and gratitude to our awesome Veterans. Saluting and appreciating all of you who have put yourself in harms way, or threat thereof, to preserve our freedoms. But this year we can do more than salute. We can help right a wrong. Did you know the GI Bill - a powerhouse piece of legislation that really helped create our middle class - basically excluded Veterans of color in its application? Once you learn that you get pretty upset - no matter your political leanings. Returning vets should get same benefits no matter their color of course. Well, there is a piece of legislation now in Congress trying to address this wrong. You can learn a bit about it here. And then, I encourage you to call your reps and leave a msg of support. You can find their contact info through this link: https://lnkd.in/etiD9nKy
Our veterans deserve our support. Some have received more than others. They all have deserved it. Lets correct a wrong and keep striving to help our veterans who have so valiantly earned it.
