Returning vets deserve our help

(Continued)

Organizing and planning in advance of when returning veterans will need these life-changing services is critical. It’s not an issue where you want to be playing catch-up.

It’s a cliché, but freedom isn’t free. And health care, mental-health counseling and occupational skills training aren’t cheap, but they are part of the commitment we make to war veterans.

These veterans have already paid a high cost for serving our country; we owe them more than a debt of gratitude.

Paul A. Grasso, Jr. is president & CEO of The Development Corporation of Clinton County.
