More than 3000 people showed up Monday at the Veteran’s Day Parade in the San Fernando Valley with Mayor Eric Garcetti as the grand marshal. Lt. Col. Oliver North joined the Morning Answer to talk about Veterans Day and the work he does to help them.
“Congratulations to the 3,000 that showed up because there’s so few places in America today that celebrate Veterans Day as what it is,” remarked North. “It’s [now] National Mattress Sale Day!”
North went on to talk about the problem of unemployment for Veterans. “Despite the fact that this is the brightest, best educated, trained lead and now most combat experienced military force in history… the unemployment rate for these veterans is double that of the national average.”
