Memorial Day 2009

The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation. 

— George Washington

Yes, agreed. We need to remember those who have give all,but asked for so little in return in a better way. May we never forget.

I agree with CS.

I have never seen that quote today. He was right though. It took a little while for the military to recover from Vietnam. Our military was a joke in the late 70s.

CS, Blue: Too many are taking it all for granted. Fighting over the spoils instead of making their own contribution (or at least honoring those who gave the most).

BB: We can thank people like John Kerry for swiftboating the military.
