Every Day Is Memorial Day

There is little I can add to bring any new insight to today.

I grew up during Vietnam and its aftermath. I remember how badly returning soldiers were treated because of the internal fighting going on here.

I hope we never mistake bad wars with good men and women fighting them again.

Whatever we may feel about the current wars, it does not negate the overall sacrifice made by the men and women in uniform and the families they leave behind to hopefully return to one day.

They are all heroes in their own way. And when they come home...and come home they will, I pray we treat them as they deserve and take care of them as they have earned.
