I entered the military in 74..didn't think I would get emotional when I went there..I did..just another war we shouldn't have been in. Old men sending young boys to their death because our country was trying to be the worlds police men again and when we got too deep in it they were afraid of losing their pride if we pulled out. Johnson cost us over 30 american boys. The really bad part of it was they sent all the ..how can I say this..poor blacks and the lower class white men to fight this war that couldn't be won. Bush did the same thing in Iraq..he lied to us about wmd's..he said he was lied to but Harry Truman said the buck stops here. Politicians make me want to throw up.

I think there was a lot of hard work put into this event but I find it very appauling that one of the "supposedly" honored speakers at this event's name was on the front page of the paper today for manufacturing marijuana. Everybody says but look what they went through (no disrepect and thankful for our veterans) but there are also many other innocent men, women and children exposed to all kinds of abuse and have never been taught anyway to defend themselves but are told get over it and they get no free money from anybody like veterans do. They, just like others have many deserving ones but also I think some play it to their advantage and are just as able to work like other normal people. So they get VA benefits and sell marijuana??????and still have multiple firearms in their home for what?????? Again no direspect to all veterans just think it gives you good men a bad name you don't deserve!!!!! Guess there's always one in every crowd - huh?

Well, you sure do sound genuinely "thankful" for our veteran's who, according to you, get all this "free money." (hope you note the sarcasm) I'm not sure where your wealth of information comes from, but you may want to check your source. It's people like you who start out with "I love our veteran's and everything but...." that really annoy the hell out of me. I am the wife, sister, grand daughter, niece and friend of many veterans. I may not approve of mistakes that any one of them have made, HOWEVER, their mistakes should not diminish the amount of admiration, love, thankfulness, and respect they receive for what they gave up to fight for you and I. ALL the men who were part of the ceremonies held DESERVED to be honored for their service and sacrifice without judgment from you or anyone else.

OK, since we got off topic, let me say that the healthest and best that the USA has to offer gets to serve, fight and die for us. So if any of you who never served any active duty OR was choosen to serve in the armed forces, you need to go to the kitchen and serve yourself some ice cream. That free, delious, goodness that keeps the children and adults in this free country happy. (and YES, there is scarcasm in this message)
