Another Perspective on Memorial Day
Choice quote :
"“Thank a veteran for the fact that you have the freedom to take a day off.” (Right, because if Vietnam had conquered the u.s. like it was all set to, they wouldn’t have given us any public holidays.)"
Vietnam, or Korea, or Grenada, or Iraq, or Afghanistan. All these countries that had already crossed our borders intent on invasion. We could add so many others to the list, including Spain.
Guess what sovereign still-existing nation is the only modern nation-state to have actually invaded the United States and threatened our freedom?
So on Veteran's Day I make it a point to thank the fallen veterans of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, because they were heroes who actually defended our soil from invaders.
