Memorial Day

This is Memorial Day, fly the flag high, thank a veteran and always remember that we can argue, we can complain, we can criticize, we can prosper and we can persevere because of the sacrifices of our veterans.  We can never fully repay them for their service, but we must never forget.   We owe them at least that  much.

Memorial Day

CDR Chuck Lentz USN Ret.

Thank you Robert.  Took a long time for many of us to get over the nonsense of those that never served when we came back from Korea and Vietnam.  Much like today when so very few are putting their lives on the line.  Right or wrong, the kids on the front line deserve much more.  Where are the Tiger Woods, the Barry Bonds, the Bush Daughters??? 

 So easy to be objectionable unless you have been there.  38,000 Korea, 56,000 Vietnam??????

I totally agree, we could have stopped this before it started but the idiot dips in D.C. that have never been there, have no idea. 

Those of us that have been there are united in wondering, "What the hell are we doing there??"

One more I would like to add.

Did any of you read the Opinion page of the Bee today??  "A new GI Bill for a new generation of veterans"???

Not one word about the Vets of Korea or Vietnam.  Much like it was when we were there.

 Isn't the Bee Great???

 

Sorry, I had to take timd out to Vomit!
