We are a group of veterans across the country who support the Occupy Wall Street Movement. We believe that the voices of veterans can help convince Americans to join in the support of the 99%.
Veterans have been used as a political capital by politicians for thousands of years. In the military one is stripped of their individuality, but somehow that individuality is amplified rather than diminished. True individuality involves doing the right thing, not by dogma or the expectation of being watched, but by having a close link to what is right. It is time to start using that political capital ourselves by raising awareness to the cause as the individuals we have been inadvertently trained to be.
