Today is Veterans Day.
I am the son of a WWII Veteran, the brother of a Veteran of operations concurrent with the First Gulf War.
War is hell. Wars are often, but not always, fought for the wrong reasons, or greedy reasons, or evil reasons. The American soldier in the trenches, however, does not start the war in which he is asked to fight. His (or her!) sacrifice, especially the final one, should be honored, even if his deployment or the reasons for his deployment should be abjured.
I remember all those who have fallen in defense of our country.
