In the midst of this Memorial Day weekend, I want to acknowledge all the military troops in the U.S. and its allies who have fought in Afghanistan and Iraq during the past decade. At long last, those conflicts are winding down, and most military personnel are coming safely to their families. Sadly, thousands of others are returning home in wheel chairs and body bags. So, while our elected officials and media talking heads wrap themselves in the American flag and cry freedom and patriotism; while bleeding heart liberals worry more about what’s happening in Africa and India; and while the youth of our nation lounges around on their fat, lazy asses typing on cell phones and watching “American Idol,” here’s to the real heroes and heroines who’ve done the dirty work. Please take a look at the video clip at the end. It’s especially touching.
