Tyler, TX, USA - Reaction to Corey Remsburg’s presence at the State of the Union was a vivid demonstration that there is one thing every American can agree on…our commitment to supporting our veterans.
The State of the Union typically highlights divisions between the parties. Obama’s 2014 salute to Cory Remsburg generated a two minute standing ovation from both sides of the aisle and these remarks by NBC commentators, “…the bipartisan high point of the night…a genuine sense of community…the unifying moment…Cory Remsburg brought people together…”
Twelve hours after the State of the Union, hundreds of articles feature Cory’s story and Cory is trending in social media.
“Seeing an increased interest in veterans like Cory Remsburg is no surprise and proves we have learned our lesson from our Vietnam experience,” says Gretchen Martens, author of Untying the Yellow Ribbon: Transforming How Veterans and Communities Thrive (2013). “Americans are looking for a way to come together and for something to feel good about. What if veterans aren’t the problem, what if they are the solution?”
Martens’ book lays out lays out the roadmap that takes us from standing ovation to rebuilding America. Along with “Veteran Studies Weekly” (February 17, 2014) and the “Veteran and Military Growth Initiative” (April 10, 2014), she shows us how prevent the loss of another generation of veterans in a way that strengthens community, saves money in local government, and creates economic development.
“There is a safety net to prevent losing another generation of Veterans to homelessness, suicide, and substance abuse. There is a way to safeguard their families from divorce, domestic abuse, and child maltreatment. There is a solution: It’s called COMMUNITY.”
