Can we please not entertain the stereotype that veterans are unstable and have a hair trigger that requires people treating them with kid gloves.
[I call this “Rambo Fallacy,” the idea that all veterans are one eye-twitch away from razing small towns and killing everyone in a thirty mile radius of them. They don’t deserve to be treated like they’re grenades with the pins pulled. And even in the event that some actually /feel/ that way at times, it does not justify treating them like Fabergé eggs crammed full of C4.
It’s largely perpetuated through ignorance, both deliberate (Hollywoodization) and inadvertent. -R]
