Congress. In the eyes of service members and veterans, grooming standards and reflective belts are more popular than our national governing body. Yes, it’s ultra-partisan, petulant, and privileged. However, it is not entirely ineffective despite what you may have heard. Congressional offices offer an influential ally, able to assist on anything from a records request to initiating legislation on vets issues. The trick to being successful, however, is knowing how to use it.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
