For The Record

United States War Casuality Numbers

Those wars, like the warriors who fought them, were fought for a dizzying array of reasons, some commendable, some not.  Some who fought those wars did so with honor and for noble ideals, some fought simply because they felt they had to, and some (let’s be honest) fought for reasons darker, be those reasons personal gain, personal revenge, or just because they had a taste for fighting. 

Regardless, and regardless of if I personally agree with the motivations behind either the war or the warrior, one thing has always been clear to me:

Not even the least of these warriors died to give other people a three day weekend. 

In other words, as far as I’m concerned, Memorial day was yesterday.

    There’s nothing like a tall, cold glass of reality splashed in your face to wake you up. 😉

    It’s summer . . . the occasional cold splash in the face is permissible. 😉
