The Logical Solution to School Security: Veterans

After the tragic shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday, there has been a justifiably heightened awareness and desire for the safety and security of our children in school. However, instead of creating gun free zones, or over-exerting local police forces, why don’t we take a look at a more logical approach to the solution?

Thousands of men and women across the country join and dedicate their lives to military forces. These troops are tactically trained and certified in combat. They are trying to neutralize the threat not only with arms, but hand to hand. Tens of thousands of them are train to dismantle incendiary devices.
As of September 2012 9.7% of all veterans are unemployed, actively seeking work. Who more worthy of employment based upon their training and abilities than our military? And what could possibly cause for our students, staff and parents to feel more secure than a soldier standing next to them?
Retired veterans pride themselves on their services, experiences and accomplishments while on active duty. How could one learn more about military purposes and history then by the first hand knowledge of someone who willingly lived through it? Isn’t that what education is all about in the first place. Isn’t education the entire purpose of school?
Perhaps we will rediscover the reverence, respect and appreciation our military once had in this country.
