    At least they tried to end all wars….It’s not their fault the rest of humanity let them down….War. What is it good for? Nothing!

    Huh, I know the last Canadian veteran died in 2010. I’ll have to mull on this for a while.

    Salute!

    And from a species-wide point of view, war is actually of tremendous value (From any even remotely personal point of view it SUCKS) – huge mixing of genes, technology advances, culture sharing/spreading, a pruning of excess population, etc…

    But speaking as someone who’s been IN a war…They suck. LOL

    Thank you, Dad, for your service in WWII, and thank you, brother Jack for VN, and thank you nephew Tripp for Bosnia and Iraq and Afghanistan. I’m deeply sorry you had to go, but proud of you all.

    I wish my father were alive, I miss him terribly. He was a WWII veteran and was in the 101st Airborne Division and was at the Invasion of Normandy. He received a Purple Heart as well. I regret that my father never told us about his experiences during WWII, but he was such a wonderful father. I miss him so very much.

    If Mittens had been elected, I can see him, in my mind;s eye, commemorating Veterans Day in Paris, Accompanied by his five sons.

    A plague or other epidemic could make the population smaller too, and without so much destruction of property!

    Also, a fine movie – “Joyeaux Noel” – tells the story of the 1914 Christmas truce.

    …though probably not with the technological advances…such a mind boggling idea, that there are inevitable advancements from huge conflicts…
