In the speech “How to Talk to Veterans About War” Wes Moore is trying to convey the message that the saying “thank you for your service” is only a start to the conversation a person should be having with a veteran. To do this, Moore tells the audience his story. Moore starts off by saying that he got into trouble as a child, and that his mother decided to send him to military school. After he graduated, he gave her the papers to sign up to become an army officer, which she then signed (Moore). Moore explains that he didn’t sign up to go to war, and that he thought he might serve on a weekend or a few weeks out of the year; however when 9/11 happened that thought process changed.
Veterans are some of the bravest men and women that you will ever know. They fought for our country in our most desperate hours and risked their lives so we could have the chance to live ours. It is such a shame that they are ignored and even homeless in today 's society. I had wondered how we could get veterans of the street and back into the job world. After research I found that there are programs and methods put in place specifically to help these struggling veterans.

A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know.
A Veteran whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his/her life.” I’m honored to be speaking with you today on such an important occasion. We’re here today to honor our service members and to remember their sacrifices they have made and the courage it take to defend honor, duty and the country. May we always be humbly grateful…. to the brave American patriots…who suffered and sacrificed for the freedom of all Americans.
The US has grappled with many questions about society’s obligations as to whether or not to offer services and benefits to the men and women in the armed forces. Supporters argue that helping veterans will help the society as whole and opponents argue that we shouldn’t be increasing our federal government spending in repaying veterans. Although I do see where people can argue that we are spending too much money on helping veterans after war, I believe that the government owes them for what they have done for the country, despite the cost. The government owes certain benefits to veterans because the men and women in the armed forces deserve to be welcomed home with a generous system of services for what they have done for the country. Helping veterans goes way back all the way to the 1600s.

In all aspects of epidemiology, measurement matters. Without carefully considered and clearly defined exposure, outcome, and covariate measurement, epidemiological studies are worthless. Socio-economic position should be no exception to this rule. Measures of SES should be selected in a study- and setting-specific way, rather than simply following convention or choosing measures on the basis of convenience. It is not necessarily the case that one SES indicator is universally `better' than others; different aspects of social and economic conditions may be more or less important for different diseases, or in different settings.
The quote “Let us not forget that there is always a moment when the moral choice is made. Often because of one story or one book or one person, we are able to make a different choice for humanity, for life.” by Elie Wiesel relates directly to our study of the Holocaust in school. Personally, I believe this quote refers to the vast amount of stories and information we have about the Holocaust which helps us improve the future. By examining the horrors of the Holocaust in the past, we can learn from our mistakes to make sure something like this never happens again.
