Our veteran's have been neglected for far too long. It is time they get something more then one day a year to commemorate what they have sacrificed and gone through for our country. We want to make the month of July, a month to celebrate our veterans past and current. Make it a month long journey of understanding that they did not risk their lives for nothing. They are appreciated and loved in the United States of America. Less than half of the country’s 21.2 million veterans were employed in 2014 (573,000 were looking for work) They come back from wars and get treated badly, unable to find employment, and many become homeless. According to the VA, about 70 percent of homeless veterans suffer from substance abuse problems, and some 45 percent are suffering from mental illnesses, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We need to do more for them and that is why they deserve a whole month to be remembered and appreciated, not just a day.
