Use, abuse and discard

Veterans, almost a sacred term denoting service, sacrifice and duty ... an easy term to cavalierly use and abuse. We often use them politically to show our “patriotism” by recognizing their heroism and sacrifice. Not to put too fine a point on it, but we all know that not all of them were heroic, nor did all of them do it, primarily, out of a sense of duty to the country.
