As a veteran, I was a little disturbed by Cabela’s promotion for Paralyzed Veterans of America. I asked a couple of pals, both of whom were wounded in Iraq about it.
It’s a consensus that this is a titch fucked, and one of my pals suggested that maybe instead of the gun sales providing donations to wounded vets, maybe it could be fishing. Or clothes. Or something that, in his words, “didn’t kill or wound a bunch of my friends. He added, “You know, the ones that lived even though they got shot, a lot of them are paralyzed. This is really uncomfortable for me.”
