1. #TheBoyWhoCriedCaravan realizes he done screwed up with #veterans so now he’s bragging about how many folks at the VA he’s fired. What he isn’t saying is that he’s screwed vets out of their educational benefits, that his mar-a-loco shadow VA leadership screwed vets over too.
2. This mother fucker thinks #veterans don’t know how to tell when leadership is blowing smoke up our asses? It’s almost the first thing you learn in basic training. We look for results, not talk and Donny is nothing but talk. He’s a #ToxicLeader.
3. No amount of glad handing a few blocks away at the @MBWDC can take back the tack that Mr. Trump disrespected the dead on his taxpayer funded trip to Paris. No yammering on about laws he passed can undue the disrespect he demonstrated to #veterans on #VeteransDay

Joe Biden celebrated #VeteransDay by giving a medal to a war criminal responsible for exploding the number of wounded veterans.
Another article about Biden being against desegregation in the 70s. politico.com/magazine/story…
When a career corporatist politician says that they deserve the presidency because they are the most qualified or have the most experience, the experience they have is usually a long list of how to be a horrible person. politi.co/2rlUnQK

Today, the @TXSBOE will hear public testimony on eliminating Helen Keller, Hillary Clinton and dozens of other people from the state's history curriculum.

Follow me for live tweets from the debate and read this for background: dallasnews.com/news/education… #txlege #txed
@TXSBOE And we're off!

The @TXSBOE has gaveled in. Chair Bahorich says live stream is down, so I'm glad I'm here in person!

First up today is public testimony on the changes to the social studies curriculum. 35 people have signed up to speak. #txlege #txed
@TXSBOE Some curriculum changes have gotten more attention than others.

Yes, Helen Keller and Hillary Clinton (both recommended, not required, to be taught) are on the chopping block.

But there are DOZENS of other proposed changes too.

This is why @FLGovScott is so frantic to avoid a legally-mandated recount: the GOP voter fraud would be discovered.

Always accuse the other side of that which you are guilty. #FLSen
“How many times does this guy have to show that he doesn’t respect men and women who served?”: @votevets

Trump effectively demands – on #VeteransDay, no less – that active-duty soldiers stationed abroad be excluded from voting in Florida midterms #FLSen nydailynews.com/news/politics/…

Leaving Detroit this morning, my Lyft driver was wearing a camo Marines baseball cap. I asked if he was a vet and we started talking about #VeteransDay, how weird it can be, and our service. He told me familiar rough stories about serving in Riyadh during the Gulf War. /1
We connected abt rich politicians & corporations sending working ppl to fight wars they wouldn't fight themselves, money in politics, & healthcare. He kept looking at me in his mirror & abruptly switched gears.

"What I'm most curious to see is this situation on the border." /2
We talked about it. He repeated a lot of conspiracy theories. We both shared our fear of violence erupting- although had different instincts of how that would start. He was very curious about my story & ideas but very convinced a political operative organized the #caravan /3

My beloved grandfather - Bill Oper - volunteered for WWI w/ 3 boyhood friends. Only he survived. Colorization by the wonderful @marinamaral2 #VeteransDay
@marinamaral2 #VeteransDay Because he could read & write, the Army transferred my grandfather to Signal Intelligence, which then was by carrier pigeon. Here’s his WWI pigeon transporter —>
They'd keep the pigeon coop at HQ & send birds in cages forward w/ the troops. Everyone in his unit from Paterson New Jersey perished. The last note received, strapped to a pigeons leg just said "gas!" #VeteransDay2018

#MACRON: "#Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. #Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace. And what is essential— its moral values."
#TRUMP: "You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, okay? I’m a nationalist. Nationalist. Nothing wrong. Use that word. Use that word."

Though recent generations of Paines have fallen from patriots to criminals, I have the honor of being descended from true American heroes: Jonathan Paine (6th great grandfather) and Sergeant Thomas Paine (5th great grandfather) of Maine. #VeteransDay
Jonathan Paine (1710-1761) served in the local militia, Capt. James Milk's company, Falmouth Neck, Maine.

Thomas Paine (1754-1847) was a Sergeant in the regiment commanded by Colonel Alden of the Massachusetts line during the Revolutionary War.
"Sgt. Thomas Paine's services during the Revolutionary War were as follows: Served early in the Revolution in Captain Bradish's Company in Colonel Ed Phinney's Massachusetts Regiment. Was at Cambridge on Oct. 20, 1775. In 1776, served in Captain Lowell's Massachusetts Company."

As we celebrate #VeteransDay this year, on the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, I am grateful for the moment to reflect on the veterans I have been blessed to interact with.
Yet these feelings of gratitude and honor we experience for those who have served our country should not be restrained to one day a year. Rather, we should use this day as a reminder to respect these brave men and women and their families through our words and actions every day.
To the roughly 150,000 veterans living in #Utah, thank you, and happy Veterans Day. Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office should you ever be in need of assistance.

Last night I ran into a few Marines from my old unit.

They informed me that a good friend of mine, Sgt Lynott—who I lost contact with—took his own life a few years ago.

It was terrible news.

He left behind a wife and two little girls.

This morning, I left Philly and came down to Annapolis to visit my other two brothers—who are buried at the Crownsville Veteran Cemetery.

I stopped at our favorite breakfast place, and had breakfast.
#VeteransDay
When I went to leave, the waitress informed me that another customer had already paid for my meal.

It took everything I had to avoid choking up, right in front of her.

I thanked her, went to my car, composed myself—and started driving to the cemetery.

But I can’t do it.

My father in law was trained as a Signal Corpsman in World War II. He carried the secret FM crystals which allowed the generals to talk to each other. Because he was usually near the generals, his war career was pretty quiet.
On the other hand, he was always vague about what the protocol was if it looked as if he, and those crystals, were about to fall into enemy hands.

Best to just be grateful it didn't come to that.
My father had a double degree in Classics and Astronomy from Cornell. The year after he graduated, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. This was enough of a shock that American military planes were still pretty antiquated, not ready for long-range combat.

At the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we come together to honor the courageous actions of the brave men and women who have served our country. #VeteransDay
Veterans represent what’s best about our nation, and we owe a debt of gratitude for their incredible sacrifice. We also owe a great deal to their families who offer vital love and support in the toughest of times.
To paraphrase what my father, Governor Casey, once said, ‘we pray for military families and their loved ones serving around the globe; but we also pray for ourselves that we may be worthy of their valor.’

100 years out, WW1 fades from collective memory. But we should never forget it as the stupidest war of all time, claiming millions of lives for no understandable casus belli, and its postwar map-drawing continues to cause war today. #Armistice100 #VeteransDay
my (and @BrianSteffen's) grandpa John Cussen Sr. cutting a rug circa 1955. He was a doughboy infantryman in WW1 France. He received a Purple Heart after being hospitalized for mustard gas exposure.
Grandpa's son, my uncle John Jr, also receive a Purple Heart in the South Pacific. He got his ticket home via a Japanese bullet that left his arm disabled. The same bullet killed a fellow Marine.

African American soldiers have served in every war in the United States. In choosing to join the military, African Americans sought to have their service understood by the nation as a demand for liberty and citizenship. We honor your sacrifice. #VeteransDay #APeoplesJourney
African American men and women who engaged in the military made their service useful not only for the good of their country, but to benefit both their personal lives and their community. #VeteransDay #APeoplesJourney
Approximately 5,000 to 6,000 African Americans served in the Colonial Forces; an estimated 20,000 served with the British Forces. Prince Simbo was a Revolutionary War Patriot who fought for his country's liberty, while many remained enslaved. #VeteransDay #APeoplesJourney
