Even Memorial Day has to be political ---it has to be.     We have a   corrupt liar,  a moron a rabble rouser   for a commander-in-chief     I hate to think so many veterans who were able bodied

voted for him.        

But for all of Trump’s boasting about his support from veterans, he has never served in the military, thanks to a string of deferments that enabled him to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War.     For the THE I DON"T CARE bunch it has no meaning....they don't care and should.  .

As far back as I can remember... none of my family has lost their life in combat. My Dad served in WWII at 17 years of age in the navy. One uncle who was a merchant marine, had his ship sunk in the north Atlantic by a torpedo, he survived.  Last one to serve was my oldest son. Blessings to all families and friends who have lost a dear one.
