Huffington Post: Top 5 Reasons Veterans Support Elizabeth Warren
Truman Fellow Dan Futrell in The Huffington Post on veterans’ support for Elizabeth Warren:
Veterans benefit from the military’s very strong, values-based organization. From the moment you begin training as a soldier, leaders consistently emphasize the importance of values so that you can instinctually rely on them when operating in the murky waters of war. Values are viewed as a part of training, just like shooting your weapon. Just as you practice marksmanship day after day so that your actions become instinctual, you are expected to show these values in everything you do. Veterans and military families support Elizabeth Warren because she has demonstrated those values throughout her life, in her words and more importantly, through her actions.
