Support of veterans has always been a hallmark of America. Policies typically reflect this cultural attitude, with a whole department of our government (The US Department of Veteran’s Affairs) devoted to helping veterans reenter the world around them after returning from combat.
Over the years, the public’s opinion on whether veterans are treated correctly in American has shifted dramatically. According to the Pew Research Center, in 1947, 53% of Americans thought the government treated veterans adequately. In 2012, only 23% of Americans thought so.
Does this shift in opinion reflect reality? What can our government do to help those who have put everything on the line for our country?
How should we help veterans? Extempers get to answer this question this week.
This week’s final round goes deep into veteran’s issues. Other topics include the Nunes memo, agricultural development, Waymo, Somalian pirates, the #metoo movement, recent Congressional retirements and more!
