#1 I am amazed I think I actually agree with her on something.

#2 Hochul thanked the members of the New York National Guard for deploying to “places like Afghanistan” and described her own visit to “a godforsaken country”

She certainly got that one right.

#3 “a godforsaken country”
New York's not a country...

#4 She was referring to Afghanistan in which case she is absolutely correct.

#5 ^#4, I know - but if NYC was a country she'd also be correct.

#6 Umm....not to be nasty but WTF? Why the hell would they NOT be considered veterans up to this point? Are they NOT considered military? Especially if called to Active Duty and deployed?

That's just inexcusable.

#7 It's virtue signaling, Kabuki theater. Of course they are veterans. What will she propose (and claim credit for) next, an end to Prohibition ?

#8 If you deployed active you are a veteran.
She wants to make service here active duty.
