Silverfiddle at Western Hero has a powerful Memorial Day post. It’s not what you might expect, but it measures 100 percent reality. Here’s a snippet and I hope you will read it in it’s entirety: Superman’s Dead: Happy Memorial Day:
Our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines now and throughout history have fought for all that is good and right, but ungrateful bastards worldwide repay them with hatred, slander and sneering, sniveling scorn. Our troops fought like lions and opened up opportunities for the oppressed and benighted. It is not our military’s fault that some are too stupid, too venal or too corrupt to take advantage of this gift paid for with blood and treasure and ultimate sacrifice.
