Veterans Beware! If you are on social media.
I learned today that there are congressional hearings going on about Russian past and current activity to influence veterans. I did some research on the subject and found several informative articles, and I report one herein. I believe that the Russians did interfere in out election, so I want to communicate this information to the Vets on this forum. Below is an opening quote from an article I found while researching what I had learned. It is followed by a link to the full article.
The same Russian "troll factories" that sought to influence the 2016 elections have continued to target service members, veterans and their families online with "hateful and divisive messages," according to a two-year investigative report by Vietnam Veterans of America.
"They're incredibly good at branding" and are seeking to "pit us against each other" in the military and veterans community, said Kristofer Goldsmith, VVA chief investigator and author of the 191-page report.
