http://thinkprogress.org/special/2011/11/11/352299/veterans-occupy-wall-street/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=pulsenewsThe 99 Percent Movement has attracted students, labor unions, unemployed workers, teachers, artists, singers, writers, former real estate brokers, political activists, people who have given up on the traditional political system, and thousands more. But a growing contingent seen at Occupy Wall Street solidarity protests all across the country are veterans.
