The article stresses on the need for the U.S. to ensure that it cares for its veterans and their families, as the recent wars begin to wind down. The past decade has been revolutionary for the military. It has adapted to a very old kind of warfare for which it was unprepared, developed new tools to defeat terrorists, and most importantly, seen extraordinary determination and courage from a new generation. The nation owes much to these veterans and should work to ease their burdens.
