Thread Name: WWII Memorial, finally!
Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
One thing I would like to point out, given the post by Dave the Gnome. Veterans Day doesn't honor the dead of all wars. It honors Veterans from all wars. Memorial Day is where we all honor our war dead. I guess that the day they hold it doesn't bother me. It is the thought that counts. And I don't see much thought, or thoughtful reflection, on the part of the general populace of the States. I don't know about the rest of my brother and sister vets, but I don't feel special or appreciated on Veteran's Day. Most folks don't give it a second thought. Except for the brothers and sisters who served. They are the only ones who continue to march. It doesn't matter whether you approve of war or not, you should honor the warriors. "And the young people ask, what are they marching for.........and I ask myself the same question".
