Your Mission Isn't Over, Stop Acting Like It IS
Over the last week, Veterans have mobilized themselves in an unprecedented manner in response to the events surrounding the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. The question is: where do we go from here?
Over the last week, there's been an awakening in the Veteran Community. We've seen Veterans coordinating the rescue of Afghan interpreters, holding their political leaders to account, and advocating for their active duty brothers and sisters.
The question is: where do we go from here? If we fall back to doing the same things we've always done, nothing is ever going to change. We'll still be here five years from now, watching this country take a dive.
Veterans can no longer sit on the sidelines. We need to be taking more active roles in our communities and our lives.
