Vets for Freedom National Heroes Tour a PR sham
It's just like show business. They ride around in a big tour bus. They pretend to be non-partisan. They wave the flag and try to convince high school students that what they're saying is true.
The truth is something else altogether. Just like it is in show business.
The National Heroes Tour is funded by Vets for Freedom, a right-wing Republican lobbying 527.
They're all offended that some high schools are turning them away, when there message is simple and non-partisan: war is glorious. There are no quadraplegics, burn victim or traumatic brain injury vets on the tour.
