Today my country honors Veterans. I am grateful for their service and sad that we still send young men and women to die in war.

The second does not diminish the first. St. Augustine said that the purpose of war is peace, I believe that most often those who serve do so with this in their hearts. I will always support them. I will not blindly support governments that use those men and women like cannon fodder, to gain power rather than secure peace.
