    My great-great-grandfather was killed at Shiloh. Some of my taxi customers died in Desert Storm, my liquor store customers in the current conflicts. My flag will fly today for all of them.

    I have a great-great-great grandfather who fought in the Revolutionary War, a great-grandfather who fought in the Civil War, a grandfather who fought in WW I – called the Great War, a father and an uncle who fought in WW II, and I was in the Air Force during the Viet Nam War.

    Freedom isn’t free.

    AND Viet Nam had what to do with freedom? except to free over 50,000 souls from their earthly bodies!

    Unfortunately there will always be a next one.
    Why can’t we all just get along.

    The great, great grandfather must have been pretty old when he served in WW 1. Brutus looks at least 40 and his great grandfather would have been born in the 1860’s-1880’s. Unless they all had children by age 18.

    Vietnam was about other people’s freedom. While we won the military war, we lost to the left wing press. And now the South, as well as the North, are Communist.

    Viet Nam wasn’t about anybodys freedom. It was about restoring the Military-Industrial complex to it’s power. Remember, if people aren’t dying, they make no money. Even Robert McNamara said in the 80s (Johnson’s Secretary of Defense) that we had no business in Viet Nam. Too bad for the 58,000 plus that died in the conflict. Eisenhower warned us. Now we are killing people everywhere for their greed.

    Whoops – my great-grandfather was wounded during the Civil War and came west to recover from his wounds. He lived to the ripe old age of 89 and passed away in 1935 – After living through World War I and the Influenza Epidemic. Born Loser must be a spring chicken if Wilbur’s great-great-grandfather was a World War I veteran. “Decoration Day” originally began to be celebrated as a way to honor fallen Civil War veterans.

    Having and expressing an opinion contrary to the one you might be expected to have gives a person a lot of credibility. Lots of people in the 60’s were saying we had no business in Viet Nam. But it was unexpected for the Secretary of Defense to say so. More attention should have been paid. As a veteran, thanks for the blessing.
