Speak Up: Where are the veterans?


Thursday, December 7, 2017

I read with interest the special insert in the paper on Veterans Day.

That was very well done and I appreciate it.

The article said there were 19 million veterans alive today.

That is not very many. I would have thought there would have been 50 million.

In a country this size of 300 million population and there are only 19 million veterans.

The veterans are dying out and dying off.

If you do the math, it only works out to a few hundred thousand per state, which is not very many at all.
