I was in Lake Placid having a drink with a veteran on the Fourth of July. The parade started, and he teared up immediately. Here’s one for you Clinton.

Definitely! Not much Veteran’s Day left now, but thanks for stepping into the breech.

NO! I am a twelve year Navy veteran and I cringe when I hear “thank you for your service”. I joined because I enjoyed sea-faring and could get free electronics training. I volunteered for Vietnam because I thought it would be exciting and necessary for our country.

I learned that Vietnam was a contrived war where military contractors and politicians were the only beneficiaries. I also learned that politics pervade the higher ranks of the military and it is impossible to gain rank and remain apolitical.

Most of the current volunteers are there because they could not find a job or education in the civilian sector. They fight as a team because it is the only way to remain alive in a war that everybody hates and no one has the guts to end.

Do we really want to thank these guys that have been coerced into fighting for multinational companies and chicken hawks in Congress”
