They’ve got issues

Following in the brave footsteps of Bring Them Home Now (which was founded a couple of years ago to organize and speak for military members, their families, and veterans against the war) we now have Operation Truth, an organization “that seeks to educate the American public about the truth of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from the perspective of the soldiers who have experienced them first-hand.” Some of Operation Truth’s issues:

Veterans Affairs Budget Cuts

Stop Loss: A “Back-Door Draft”

Weak National Support Systems for Soldiers’ Families

Proper Counseling and Treatment for the Soldiers

Proper Funding and Compensation for Reservists and National Guardsmen

Problematic Role of Private Contractors in Combat Zones

Citizenship for Returning Servicemembers

More power to ’em!
