Veterans we interviewed and surveyed for this book as well as veterans we have talked to over the years made it clear they did not join the military to fight for socialism. Many of the veterans interviewed and surveyed for this book said they served in the military because they loved the freedom and opportunity afforded them by our country as well as the values that have long characterized America. To them, America has always been the good guy in the community of nations. A socialist America, in the eyes of these veterans, will no longer be a good guy.
