You may be surprised to know that many of those who have served the country find it more than difficult to find meaningful employment after serving.
IVP's ensemble cast does an admirable job of dramatically bringing to life the passion for flying of these women and the challenges of sexism (both in the military and at home) and being first in their field.
There's an old saying in surfing: Go big or go home. Right now, each race around the country is in it's own little bubble, disconnected to the larger narrative. Only true vision and leadership can unite them to raise a populist wave and that is what the Presidential pulpit is for.

We veterans will always be bound together by a very special bond. That will never be broken. But that doesn't mean we have to all endorse the positions or candidacy of every veteran, just because they are a veteran.
The timing is ripe for meaningful and historic changes in the provision of timely and effective treatment of health care for our service members and veterans.
