What does it matter if they are black white red or yellow? Just honor people not the color!!! Or do you want us to be separate?

Serious, I do agree with you, all should be honored, but the problem is that for years they were not accepted as true veterans. Unfortunately for years they were considered second class soldiers, just as many were considered second class citizens. The story needs to be told.
