What's in it for them? Wounded veterans and Gold Star families answer Trump's question about why troops serve


Recommended Posts

Washington (CNN)Before my husband deploys, he has a ritual that is familiar to many service members. He sits down with a generously poured bourbon, and he writes letters. One for his adult daughter, Rosalind. One for each of our little boys, Teddy and Antonio. One for his grandma, who raised him, and his family in Texas. One for me.

His process is solitary, but the last time he wrote these letters at our dining table, I walked by him on my way to the kitchen. He was crying as his pen moved across the paper. https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/09/politics/homefront-why-troops-serve/index.html
