Love the Soldier, But NOT the war!

I want it to be known by ALL, that those of us who protest the war, in no way, shape or form, do we protest the soldier. Soldiers are young & vulnerable when they sign up to go & fight. They believe they are doing what is best for their country. When we protested the US supported war in El Salvador, a group of African American soldiers rooted us on & said “Thank you.” One said “We don’t want to get our asses blown off in El Salvador!”
I ask you: Soldiers give their heart & life for their country, BUT what do we give them back? Throughout history, the answer has been the same. Our governments give the soldier LESS THAN NOTHING! They are out there among the homeless in HUGE numbers. They are alone & lonely. What will you do for a soldier today?
The only thing I can think to do is to go back working for the homeless. That is where I have run into the most veterans!

I thought I had posted this here, but it was on a Facebook page called “Born on the 4th of July.” Since we still have a few hours of Veteran’s Day here on the West Coast, I will post it now.
Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:

Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:
