I've had first-hand experience of what a soldier can go through coming home with a purple heart and no legs.
Honor the warrior, not the war.
Look at this man. Really look at him. How have you served your country? When given the opportunity, don't let a veteran go by without thanking him for his service. Don't let this man and others like him be forgotten. We owe a responsibility to these men and women. Are they being cared for? Don't wait until they are on a street corner with a cardboard sign to help. We can serve our country by serving these warriors. But what about their brothers and sisters who gave their last full measure of devotion only to return in a flag-draped casket? What of their surviving families?
