11/11/11 -- Not Just A Funky Date

| Posted 11.11.2011 | Politics

With the Iraq War set to end soon and the Afghanistan War entering its second decade following the death of Osama bin Laden, this may be the biggest and most important Veterans Day ever. We must remember that new veterans are an investment for the entire country. They represent exactly what America needs right now to rebuild its economy and propel its future: leadership, resilience and a commitment to serve. They're a generation who can turn our country around -- and who can lead America into the future. The New Greatest Generation is America's future. And that's why we should invest in their potential -- not just on Veterans Day, but every day of the year. And it starts on 11/11/11.
