^Warjoski: My Uncle and Father-in-Law fought in the Battle of the Bulge (and were both wounded). My dad was 4-F, but did “his bit” on the home front. I was in Viet Nam, My son in Iraq and elsewhere, fighting for this nation Friends served in the Peace Corps and risked their lives overseas to promote and protect this nation in “other ways”.
The average American today seems to think just reading about Ebola, or Iraq, on their cell phones, while with Cheney in a secure, undisclosed location, is “courage”.
We who served, whether in war or elsewhere, are discouraged, and disgusted, by all the fear in this country, especially from those most ready to reject people in need, while letting someone else fight their literal wars for them.
