Veterans

Having grown up accepting the received history of WWII as gospel I’m now a complete revisionist but still like the Greatest Generation as much as Brokaw does. So here’s to them and to the noble cause of ending mission creep and empire (a problem WWII worsened of course), and restoring a strong military, just large enough and no more, to the true calling of defence: guarding the homeland.
