That's no good. With our history with veterans, the government would fly them all to Washington, put them up in a good hotel, feed them well, have them create a good parade, then boot them out of the hotel and make them figure out how to get home on their own.

If you really want to honor veterans, stop by the nearest VFW and buy a round at the bar.

If you really want to honor those in the service now, go help at the USO.

I'm sure that those in the service don't really want to waste time getting all togged up in dress uniforms and then having to march. Taking that time to spend with family and friends would be much more enjoyable.

Yeah, but a lot of those people are probably Trump supporters who think he'll solve the issues in the VA system.

Then send them a bill for the hotel room.

But it will say "Thank you for your service" at the bottom of the bill, so it's OK.
