The Veterans Campaign will Change America!
Operation Yellow Elephant strongly endorses the Veterans Campaign, a non-partisan project of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Stated simply, they want to help veterans to run effective campaigns for public office:
At Veterans Campaign we believe that our country’s veterans are a valuable yet untapped resource of potential elected leadership. Veterans possess many qualities our country needs in its public officials. They have outstanding leadership experience, are capable of succeeding in the face of adversity, and intimately understand the human consequences of Washington’s foreign policy decisions. Most importantly, they have demonstrated their willingness to put America and its citizens before their own well-being. Today more than ever, our country needs more veterans in public office.OYE Comment:
This initiative is a very welcome activity to help change America for the better. We thank all veterans, and those who assist them, for getting involved in the political process. This includes both parties and a wide variety of perspectives all along the political spectrum. Even if you don't win, you are helping to make America a better place.
Hat tip to Thomas E. Ricks.
