Take a few moments out of your day and remember them. Bunker Hill. Yorktown. Lake Erie. New Orleans. Shilo. Gettysburg. St. Mihel. Bataan. Normandy. Leyte Gulf. Bastonge. Naktong River. Pleiku. Khe Sanh. Al Busayyah. Fallujah.
We send men – and now, women – out to battle for us. It is not for them to question policy – that is made by civilians. They just have to do the bleeding and the dying for it. Doesn’t matter what you think about the policies which sent them out – take a moment to remember them and honor them.
