Happy 4th from Pheasant Country?

Before all the military people go ballistic, I want to say, I think what this charity does is wonderful! Helping veterans to relieve stress while enjoying the great outdoors is awesome.

This is more of a critique of artwork on the trailer, and not just this trailer, but I see this often on other veteran organizations vehicle wraps.

Is it okay to create patriotic themes with the cross? I don’t know, not sure what the rules are on that. But pheasants flying out of a cross? Um . . .?

The continual war has spurred a cottage industry. At least Wounded Warrior Project was exposed. It makes you wonder how many other organizations like that have questionable fund raising tactics too.

I believe only 1 or 2% of us have ever been brave enough to have worn a uniform in our time. Given that, I would like to see more sign up instead of using veterans, in order to set up a non profit, which then creates some nicely paid executive positions.

I often wonder how many of the people who head up these organizations, or start them, have ever worn an uniform, or have close family members in the service.

I will never forget, when 9/11 happen, only one member of Congress, our own Tim Johnson, had a child in uniform. Sadly, I believe this fact is still indicative of how things play out to this day, where for most it is just all show, or a show of support, but few are willing to really put on the uniform.

One must ask also, will the continual war ever end? And does this “cottage industry” only further fuel it; and if you can’t wear the uniform, then why should others wear it for you?

I have no idea about the details of these charities, but I do take issue with how they spend money. Do you know what a vehicle wrap costs? Well they are not cheap. Simple vinyl lettering on the trailer (if any) would have sufficed.
