To Our Veterans


Thank you, veterans, for your service.

I know, I for one, am very aware and appreciative of the sacrifices made to ensure our freedom and way of life as Americans.

In college, a friend declared she didn't know what Pearl Harbor was. I was enraged. I said, "How the fuck did you get into college - and you don't even know what Pearl Harbor is?!" People were like, "God...big deal..."

Well, it is a big deal. If we had been in our early 20s in the 1940s instead of the late '90s, all the guys we know would have been away at war - risking their lives fighting for our freedom.

I know it sounds clicheed and all, but it's true.

Oh, and not to mention the fact that my Dad died as a result of his service during Vietnam. He got cancer from the Agent Orange the United States sprayed on the Vietnamese vegetation.

So, thanks veterans.

  • Right on man...It's amazing how little kids today care about the history of this country. Would you believe one of my friends thought the Civil War took place in the 1700's????? WTF

  • Wow, man. You are a posting machine! Loved this post...my late Grandpa was a WWII veteran & I agree completely that kids (and many adults) today have absolutely no idea what sacrifice for, love and respect of our country means.

    Keep posting! You're on a roll!

  • Sorry about your dad, dude. And I don't think you overreacted at all... Not knowing about Pearl Harbor??? Wasn't that like the biggest attack on the US before 9/11? I can't believe she didn't know about it.
