    Being married to a veteran, we fully understand the sacrifice.

    A good day for remembrance for sure, but also, I submit, for reflection on the meaning of the word war. It’s meaning continues to change with time. In WW I it was trench warfare, poison gas and cannon fodder. In WW II it was U-boats, tanks and A-bombs. In Vietnam it was guerrilla warfare. Now, it’s IED’s, terrorism, and “insider attacks.” Another change is that ever fewer of our political leaders are veterans.

    I do. We do. And most important, we remember the ones that survive and need our support.
