A column by a vet that has recently appeared in an online publication for vets and which concerns military matters, calls into question the use of the term “Thank you for your service.” The columnist says many vets are quietly embarrassed by this expression as they never served in combat and don’t think of themselves as heroes.

Interview: Carrie Severino, Former clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas and Chief Counsel to Judicial Crisis Network. Topic: The Filibuster tactic and why Founders would not approve the use of it with Gorsuch.
