Bumper Sticker Dilemma for US Military
January 29, 2012 Leave a comment
The TBT has an excellent op-ed from Russ Hoyle on the need for the military to get back in touch with ethical reality and that means the nation needs to have a more vested personal interest in our servicemembers.
In little more than a generation, those who fight our wars have narrowed to 1 percent of the population, while the American public’s interest in our armed forces has sharply diminished. Most Americans simply no longer have the same personal stake they once did in the military’s actions, bumper-sticker sentiment to the contrary.
