On this Memorial Day, while we remember people who have fallen while in service to this country, I’d like to propose something for those still living.
Right now, disabled veterans get tax breaks. That’s a good thing.
But I’d go further. I’d provide tax breaks for all veterans, even those not disabled.
These breaks would last for as long as the veterans spent in uniform. So if you spent four years in service and then left the military, you’d enjoy tax breaks during your first four years after becoming a civilian. These breaks could be similar to the tax breaks that servicepeople get while still in uniform.
Veterans have served us. Let’s serve them.
