Soldiers are “recruited and expended”: We need to do a better job of “remembering”

Rebel Staff

Sunday is Remembrance Day, so on last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I continued my tradition of reading Kipling’s poem, “Tommy,” but I’ve also discovered a song that talks about how our veterans are sometimes treated.


Kipling wrote that poem 128 years ago, but we see the same problems today when many of our soldiers are left wounded, without proper care, and sometimes even homeless, after being sent to far away lands on foolish missions.

We don’t seem to learn, and need to do a better job of remembering.

Watch as I show some recent examples of where we’ve come up short, like Canada sending troops to Mali.

P.S. The Rebel has a joint project with Tommy Robinson to save a PTSD centre called “Combat Stress”. VISIT SaveCombatStress.com to learn more and sign the petition.
