Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
Well, Liz, I wasn't aware of the WWI soldiers that you mention. While this is primarily about the 55 year wait, I feel that ALL soldiers from all American conflicts should be recognized. While being shot for cowardice in the face of the enemy is not an honorable thing, unless one was there feeling what those men were feeling and answering the primary need for survival we should not judge their situation. What I have read of the warfare in the trenches of WWI I can't say that I myself may not have made a hasty retreat to the rear!
