    Doesn't seem to be a bad idea at face value. Let's move a little deeper. First I am saddened that unemployed veterans even exist. I wish that all returning veterans could get the assistance needed upon their return as they convert to civilian life. In a timely manner!! As there is obviously no shortage of fellas when we are engaged in conflict in a hostile zone. That being said. How do you fund such project? Voluntary basis?? What qualifications are necessary? Having merely being in the military? As all service branches have their required minimal training, an MOS as a cook or a clerk doesn't always come with the experience package in dealing with a direct threat. What oversight is needed in observation of said patrol. Again difficult to answer, no shortage of POGs in any occupation anymore, but that is another discussion for another day. Another question. How exactly are these patrol zones classified? "Hearts and minds" zone, "No go" zone, "Free fire" zone??? Yet another question.... Who is going to stand up for these "patrols" when they have a second to act?? And maybe "someone" POG or otherwise, having not been there, has a different opinion of how it should have went down. Will they be accused of being too militarized?? Hmmm, military members being militarized? There is an organization in place that works tirelessly on this type of thing. It's called the police department. They drive around in the blue and whites, clearly marked POLICE. Now even if not clearly marked they identify themselves as "police officer" (fill in command or request). They even are receptive to former military service within their ranks. One better, they even look like you and me. They even live in all the neighborhoods in this city, yes among the regular folks. Because they are regular folks, just trying to make a difference daily. In closing I'd like to quote a former public service member, "See a cop, thank a cop"!!!
