|Veterans Have Earned Respect|
I look at some of the comments that are posted in the vets group and I wonder why some would feel the slightest pity about how our enemy is interrogated, considering the treatment of our wounded and dead by our enemies who are supposed to abide by the Geneva Convention.
Waiting, always waiting, for a phone call from a loved one, or waiting and hoping not to get a knock on the door. "We Were Solders" brought this home tragically and impersonally. Now, at least uniformed soldiers come to your door. But the ignorant in our society disrespect the funerals of those who have paid the ultimate price. The misuse of our constitution allows this, but why? Because those that sacrifice nothing expect everything at our expense.

Understanding comes from being open-minded and compassionate. Lack of knowledge and reality closes a lot of doors to communication. Listening to the wrong people helps no one, especially you. A closed mind is a mind that lacks knowledge and compassion.
