Veterans’ Day

[ 10 ] November 11, 2012 |

Here’s Tom Russell providing something a bit more meaningful than the cheap patriotism we usually see on this day (and have seen all day from the NFL).

    If you think the patriotism’s cheap, wait until you see the bargains on mattresses and tires at our once-a-year Veterans’ Day Sale!

    I’m still waiting for War Resisters Day, when I will march with all of us who knew the wars were immoral. Not just Vietnam and Iraq. I honor my high school girl friend’s father who went to prison over WW II. Hey, Tom Brokaw, I knew some members of the real Greatest Generation.

      What about a War Survivors’ March for civilian POWs like my mother’s family, who were interned by the Japanese Army in Shanghai, China for 18 months in WW II?

      He was German, right?

  • But I like having things shoved down my throat! In other news, that Carrie Underwood “anthem” sounds fantastic.

    The old Lie; Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori

    • Timeless and always appropriate.

      I remember exactly where I was when I heard that Alec Campbell had died; all I could think was that now no one will march there at all.

        I remember exactly where I was when I first heard that song, sung by Eric Bogle hisself. Sad magic.

          Sad magic indeed.
