That's why we're working hard to unite the various veterans groups in SE Michigan. We need to strengthen the veteran community. There is no excuse for us to not have each other's backs.

1. Deciding all by yourself if today is a "Shave Day" or not.
2. Leaving your hat on when entering a building.
3. Putting your hands in your pockets.
4. Not having to search someones uniform to figure out if you have to salute.
5. Walking to someone's Left and mysteriously NOT spontaneously combusting.
6. Completely dismissing requested numbers and adding one more thing just because you can get away with it.
