    To watch the movie, many in the Administration, including him, have been told the stories and much more about this past decade especially but also the older vets and families of, directly from those who've Sacrificed, the soldiers and their families and when they've returned and joined our veterans community.

    As the tepubs especially have quickly run from any responsibility and the rest of the country have allowed them to as they themselves pay little heed, DeJa-Vu all over again, to what still is going on, as he leads the Military as CiC the way those actually being sent want him to, the gradual drawdown so they can at least try to accomplish some of those long ago main missions sent to do, knowing that's been impossible now for these past years, but still wanting!

    For some Afghans they will but for the rest and the region the growth in hatreds pointed back at us as a country, not just our policies anymore, are now well embedded especially in those that grew up in!

      I think if you had, you would understand why watching the movie is as important as hearing the stories from people. The people who put this film together do more than just tell stories; they explain how sexual predators succeed at what they do. That's whats been missing from any training on sexual harassment in the military. We just don't want to believe that we have sexual predators among our numbers.

        But that's not my point. As to those in this Administration, who haven't stopped what they started even before entering, talking to persons or groups of with tears running down their faces bringing on the tears of those listening is the reality, especially for the First and Second ladies and those working with them, see the response below I just added, then watching a movie of same.

        This isn't made for the Soldier or Families of nor us Veterans or those who either form or work with the many organizations that help the community or the many volunteers who give to the VA facilities, this is made for the huge majority of civilians that only give speak and symbols of support who frankly few will ever watch or get if they do!

        Speaking of the Second Lady and wife of the Vice President:

        Hunter Biden, VP Biden's son, to be commissioned in Navy Reserves

        He had to apply for a waiver because he's 42 the stop point of enlisting or reenlisting, You Go Hunter!!

        Note: Keep in mind the romney five sons!!!!
