This Veterans Day I mostly to want to assure the
Children and Grandchildren of Americans Vietnam
Veterans that their Fathers and Grandfather's served
honorably and heroically.
And that their treatment and vilification by the
Media and the "Left" upon their return was both
unwarranted and disgusting!
A Veterans Day never passes that I don't think of and

Proud of our family's service.

denigrating the Symbols of this Nation so many served and sacrificed to protect
is the sophomore behavior of just another pampered, empty headed celebrity that
never shed a drop of sweat, let alone a drop of blood to protect this nation
and maintain our freedoms. The freedoms that have provided the opportunities
that make it possible for them to gain wealth by tossing a ball or mouthing the
words of others in some entertainment media. Most of them wouldn’t have the
skill to manage a 7-11! They should stop drowning the airwaves with their
thoughtless, inarticulate and spit!
