Do you honor police on Veterans Day?

Absolutely not unless they served in the military. No, simply because a police officer may on occasion encounter a violent situation, it does not make them a military veteran. When the going gets tough the police can quit where as the military person must go on and do their best under the worst of conditions. The military is not represented by a union. Military spend time away from their loved ones. Military sacrafice a normal life. I realize many police consider themselves para-military but they are simply.....police. Not members of the military. If police with no military service want to be called vets or want to join vetrans organizations or be honored a veterans........join the military.
