    Thanks for telling it the way we in the targeted part of the world see it, Night-Gaunt.

    All this mawkish sentimentality over our soldiers. The only real way to show them respect and gratitude is to insure that they never get put in harm’s way to satisfy a whim, or to put money into already fat pockets.
    As this latest war was being contemplated, Congress was busy asking entertainers about steroids.
    We older citizens—the “hell no, we won’t go” generation—signed off on the war ’cause there was no draft, and everyone knows that REAL Americans go to college—not to the armed services.

    No, David, we didn’t. Many of us in the “hell no” generation did NOT sign off on these wars. Many pastors of my generation preached against it. Many people have participated in demonstrations. The problem is, without a draft, it is all too easy to ignore, which the politicians realize. Those of us who live in areas where many of the young people live below or close to the poverty level grieve that they see military service as the only way up in life.

    What this strip brings to mind is that Latinos have served for generations, and their contributions have been minimized.
