I don't recall this from any history classes. Watching this video, I doubt you'll be able to not think about the plight of today's veterans. Our nation's youngest brightest and finest used up, then discarded and government troops called out to clear them by force. Government promises.

Do you think our military, acting on orders from a broken federal gov't, would NOT march against our own citizens? Think what you want to, but THIS DID HAPPEN only a couple of generations ago.

Hard to believe but it was only 80 years ago

I want to say OMG but that doesn't begin to do justice, that is just the most disturbing shameful thing I've ever seen. American Army troops called out to disperse forcefully veterans that fought in that war! And I guess all they wanted was what the government promised them government promises, I guess they're not worth the paper they're printed on. I asked my grampa about this and he said he remembered hearing about it. Very disturbing! If it happened once it could happen again for sure.
