Thread Name: WWII Memorial, finally!
Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
Again, there have been memorials before any new one in DC. My cousin, Rick Delugo, was the prime mover and shaker in creating one in California about 10 years ago that also includes veterans of the Korean War. It's Korean vets who have really been totally ignored. Whatever your views on warfare or any particular action on the part of this country (and a lot of our views are colored by the war the United States waged in Vietnam), our veterans of whatever conflict -- WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc. up to the Gulf War and beyond -- deserve respect and honor. Save your political disagreements for the politicians.
