Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
While we called it the Korean conflict, to our men in the military it was just as much a war as any other. The cold was unbearable, the fighting fierce as multitudes of the enemy attacked their positions. Brave men, wounded and dying amidst the rifle and mortar fire might disagree with the terminology of those who called it a conflict. It was a war and to the veterans of it should go the honor and respect due to men of war.
War has never really been popular, but until Vietnam we always supported and honored our men in uniform. We may not agree with the Wars, that are fought today, but we are the ones who go to the polls and elect the people that make these decisions. The veterans of Vietnam are no less worthy of our support and honor than those of earlier wars. They were no less brave, their sacrifices no smaller, and their deaths less tragic than the Continental soldiers of the Revolution, those who wore the blue and gray, the doughboy of WWI, or the GI of WWII. Many were wounded, many were killed and many came home with scars that could not be detected by our eyes but surely should be noticed with our hearts. Let us remember them with respect and honor.
They fought so that we would have the freedoms that we have. Let us not ever take these freedoms for granted.
