Remember Them

Sometimes, I think we forget….I believe that although most Americans likely hate that we have been involved in a terrible war effort in Iraq, they don’t hate the men and women who were sent there to do a job.

This takes me back to Viet Nam. We HATED that we were involved in that ugly conflict (remember, it was NOT a war?!?) and so very sadly, many people in my generation also had a loathing for the brave men (no women back then) that did their job.

This clip from Youtube is circulating and it really does need to be watched by everyone. We need to remember that the soldiers are doing their job and we dare NOT loathe them again or turn our backs on them, like Viet Nam. We need to remember them…just REMEMBER them…

Remember Me

Please watch, and remember.

    I think one of the few “fortunate” things about this war is that people have shown that regardless how they feel about the war, they do value and respect the troops. Oh, except for the Bush administration. They’re the ones treating our men and women like crap when they return home from their fourth and fifth tour of duty.

    I have tears rolling down my face watching this. And it is sad that while citizen attitudes have changed this time around, the government has done so much to hurt veterans in terms of cutting benefits, medical care, etc.
