Veteran's Day

For those who served in all of our wars, justified or otherwise, thank you. Living, dead, or somewhere in between, I still say thank you. Without you stepping up and doing what is asked for, we wouldn't necessarily be free enough to debate whether a war was justified or not.

Even now, we're making more battle scarred and wounded veterans. For those politicians who treat our military and veterans like throwaway cheesburger wrappers - fuck you. Chickenhawks get a front row seat in the hell of choice of the nearest veteran, IMO. War is not a game, with little pieces to move around on a board for fun and profit. Wars should be swift, terrible, necessary, and very, very rare.

I wonder, now, where are the parades we used to have?

We aren't doing anything with Civil War on Memorial Day, next year. Too many folks said they wanted to barbecue with their family. Sigh...

We're doing the big parade tomorrow. Today was a memorial for the 4 young men who died earlier this week. Also breakfast for veterans at the VFW. Of course we have 1 major Army post, NORAD, 3 Air Force bases, and the AFA within screaming distance so we tend to honor the fallen more. They're also dedicating some more names at the National Fireman's memorial this year. They'll do that tomorrow as well, to be followed by the "ice bowl" football tourny. Hail the fallen! Hail those who served and came back! Screw the chickenhawks!
