Happy Veterans Day, 2012: Why OUR Veterans Are Different Posted By: Warner Todd Huston 11/11/2012 12:28:04 PM Publius Forum, by Warner Todd Huston Original Article
America is a singularly different nation where it concerns our military veterans. We love them. We even have a national holiday to honor them. This is not so in most of the rest of the world. Elsewhere military veterans are not so loved as they are here. Is that because the United States is the Sparta of the world, loving war more than anything else? Hardly. In fact its because our soldiers bring peace wherever they go, not perpetual war.
