Many members of our armed forces are returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and it should be our patriotic duty to support them immensely. We need to provide special assistance to those returning to civilian life – the able and the disabled.
I suggest we salute and honor them by having a citywide parade, and help them gain meaningful employment. The city of St. Louis recently held a huge parade, and has had several successful job fairs, especially for veterans.
Citizens of Augusta, we can do the same. Let’s get started!
