Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
Every Veteran's day for as long as I know, Snoopy has gone down to Bill Mauldin's house and quaffed root beers. This is the first year he didn't probably since I've been alive. Charles M. Schulz served in France in WW2.

Thank you, veterans, and especially those who gave their lives in the service of freedom.

I "marched" in the Veteran's Day parade in Auburn, Washington (largest VD parade west of the Mississippi, we were told) as a chaparone for my son's high school marching band. It was really touching to see all the decorated veterans along the parade route. True heroes.

Yes, I know war is evil. But sometimes it is really the lesser of two evils, and when those times arise, thank goodness there are courageous and selfless men and women willing to risk their lives.

Thank you, veterans.
