The Army Way: Veterans

General George Washington said, "The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."

Our army wants the best and brightest individuals to serve. How we treat army veterans surely speaks loudly today to young people consider the army as a career. Soldiers should be received into civilian life as well trained individuals who have proudly served our country.
