Veterans more likely to volunteer, vote and serve the community than civilians

Yesterday I posted my dismay that a CNN Anchor would blame combat veterans for the riots in Baltimore and police brutality in general. I pointed out that combat Vets are extremely disciplined and have to be, to comply with ROE. Her quote:

“I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities and they’re ready to do battle,” Brooke Baldwin.

Sorry Brooke. Here are some facts courtesy of the Washington Times and a just released study. The truth is 180 degrees out from what Ms. Baldwin charges. Veterans are actually more involved than civilians not less, and they volunteer more to boot. Even those with PTSD, we Vets already knew that. Now there is hard evidence.
