As the decades of undeclared/unwon wars stack up (The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.) the greater the cultural urge to glorify people who do, or did time in uniform.


Military town update:

Show support by attending base open house

“Which its public record requires some bravery … bravery which I was honored to exercise on behalf of the real heroes who give civilians that right — our troops!

People in uniform give rights?


Left the above comment here and here. Both comments have been deleted- though they contained no hate speech, insults, threats, foul language, attacks on other commenters, etc.

Wonder how many other comments were deleted?



Veterans love to get in on the self-promotion:

“Veterans, not politicians, ‘give us the right to vote,’ observers at Amherst Veterans Day ceremonies told”

It turns out The Troops were in no hurry to enable all adults to act on their right to vote.

US Military operations conducted in the 1940s, 50s & 60s didn’t get the job done.

It wasn’t until July of 1971 that 18 year old adults could take delivery on one of the freedoms we hear so much about.

Why the need for a 1965 Voting Rights Act if overseas military operations somehow secured voting rights?

Hey school teachers– if veterans fought for our right to vote- how come women were not allowed full voting rights at the end of WWI?
