    Vets in the Streets

    Tommy
    …………
    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute! ”
    But it’s ” Saviour of ‘is country ” when the guns begin to shoot;
    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
    An ‘Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool – you bet that Tommy sees!

    R. Kipling 1892 [127 Years ago]

    Well chosen
    Well trained
    Well used
    Maimed.

    Forgotten

    Qualified to serve
    Disqualified for help

    Lost

    Employed in danger
    Now a stranger

    Alone

    Once buoyed by camaraderie
    Now no anchor – lost in sea

    Red tape

    Or none
    Dropped
    Gone

    Existing

    Billion$ start down from the top
    But where does the buck stop

    Too many in pain and peril
    Scraping the bottom of the barrel
