Memorial Day

I was very involved in the anti-war movements in the Vietnam and Iraq wars. However. I never lost sight of the bravery and heroism of all those who served in our armed services. It was not they who decided to go to war, yet they willingly faced the horrors of war and endured all sorts of hardships . Unfortunately, especially in the Vietnam era, they returned to all sorts of recriminations, and were castigated and neglected. We must honor their commitment and give more than lip service to the multiple needs that their service has created. Our veterans deserve the concrete assistance that they have earned, and each of us must support them as they return to civilian life.
