lol...your asking on whats primarily a American forum? If only you can ask those wounded vets stuffed in hospital basements and closets waiting for Obamacare to take care of their medical issues that the VA hospital's forgot about...maybe then you might get a hand or two....just maybe.

actually i am asking because it seems to me most of those who benefit the most from veterans day aren't veterans!!!

i've been a vet for almost 30 years and have never had the day off work with pay, willing to bet i'm not the only one.

only 12% OF AMERICAN GET IT OFF WITH PAY even though it is a recognized official holiday...and most of those are government workers, and of course politicians....hypocrisy abounds when it comes to active duty military and veterans, while american business profess to honoring veterans and are always thanking us for our service they don't seem very supportive...i looked at a site that talked about why business doesn't hire vets, looks like capitalism wins over patriotism hands down!!!

I'm not a vet no, and wasn't expecting to have it off with pay... But it would be nice to have the day off to spend with people in my family who are vets.
That's what my boss says to me on vets day" your not a vet, get back to work" lol.

Wouldnt it be cool if on veterans day you can set up a independent charity event and serve free food to homeless vets without the worrisome of getting arrested for 1 day?

just one more example of how f'ed up this country has become....we give billions of aid to feed other country's hungry and arrest people for feeding our own hungry...that is total insanity, imo.

can you imagine how stupid that must seem to people around the world...it's no wonder the world's people have lost respect for us.

The goverment should stop financing all those terrorists in Syria and Iraq along with endless wars (another 5+ billion announced along with 1,500 troops by the way by the Furor Obama) and use that money to help finance "Payed Veterans Week!!!!!"

the government is actually doing a lot more for vets today than in the past, if you think the V.A hospital system is bad today it is 100% better than in the years after viet nam!!!

it's big business i have the beef with, they should be hiring more vets and sponsoring more charities aimed at vets if they are going to shoot their mouths off about how much they honor vets. if big business put just one tenth of the money they put into breast cancer to help vets there would be no homeless vets, imho.

don't forget vets during the holidays...if you are going to donate food, money, toys or even time, make sure to include organizations who care for our vets.
