At your earliest convenience, resolve to remember Veterans Day this weekend and thank a vet.

That’s why we decided to remind our readers about it a day early here.

You might think that with so many people invoking veterans to score political points these days, no one would need such a reminder.

Yet, despite the demise of veterans among the Greatest Generation and the endless wars facing the latest generation, national and social media’s focus is blurred.

The contention that the NFL players’ protest is disrespectful to veterans and then presidential-candidate Donald Trump’s disdain for those who were prisoners or war still often dominate that conversation.

Let’s be clear, we don’t speak for all veterans or feel all that confident even trying to generalize the concerns of most veterans.

The reason we say that is that veterans, much like the entire civilian population, are not all on the same page.

Simply put, all veterans do not think alike and there is often nary a consensus of opinion on many issues.

But at the risk of undermining that point, most veterans would agree how our nation cares for them matters.

We suspect most would tell you that making the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) more efficient and reducing wait times is still job No. 1.

Even with reforms that now allow veterans to seek private treatment if they cannot get a VA appointment within 30 days, this agency is more often than not still described as a “nightmare” by many.

Coming in as perhaps their second greatest concern, we suspect, is that 40,000 veterans are living on the streets.

Though less than 1 percent of America’s population is in uniform today and about 7 percent once wore one, more than 11 percent of the nation’s homeless population are veterans.

The suicide rate among veterans probably closely tails the issue of homelessness.

In 2015, it equated to nearly 30 per 100,000 veterans, or roughly 50 percent higher than the rate among other civilians with similar demographic characteristics.

That flattens out to be about 22 veterans taking their own lives every day, according to an estimate based on a VA analysis of death records from 21 states.

Other serious issues, both psychological and physical, dog the ranks of veterans both young and old.

Often, even well-intentioned civilians claim to speak for all veterans or dictate what offends them on issues as divisive among them as the rest of us.

We urge that rather than attempt to impose your politics upon veterans, you champion how our nation cares for them and their families.

It’s never too early or late to remember them, but our veterans will never forget how we treated them.
