Veterans Day

This is a day late but I wanted to post it anyways. Veterans are an important of our history. I am thankful for what the veterans have done for this country. I think one thing that is real important to separate what is current history in war from previous wars. If you look at World War II the soldiers came back as heroes because they had stopped the tyranny in Europe and retailiate for the attack by Japan. The wars after that seem to be more controversial.

The VietNam War is a perfect example of problems caused from wars. There were problems convincing the people that it was a honorable war. The problems that occurred at Kent State, with the shootings because of the protest, are a perfect example of a war that was not honored.

I still feel we should be thankful for the veterans no matter what the war outcome. The soldiers should be honored for serving in a place they were ordered to go.

A big thank you, for anyone who has served in the military.

I feel the same way. We're enjoying a free country while our soldiers are dying on foreign land.

Regardless of what a person feels about the war now, and the President, they owe respect to our soldiers. I think people forget the soldiers because they're so wrapped up in their in their freedoms, their jobs, their recreation, and because they are not on the front lines with the soldiers it's easy to forget that they wouldn't have their "luxeries" if it weren't for the soldiers.
