Iraq, Afghanistan vets to hand back medals:

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2012/05/iraq-afghanistan-vets-to-hand-back-medals-at-nato-summit/1?csp=34news#.T7aUb4Hwx8H

"We, Afghanistan and Iraq veterans from around the country will converge in Chicago on May 20 to ceremoniously return our medals to NATO generals," according to the blog. "We were awarded these medals for serving in the Global War on Terror, a war based on lies and failed policies. This endless war has killed hundreds of thousands, stripped the humanity of all involved, and drained our communities of trillions of dollars, diverting funds from schools, clinics, libraries, and other public goods."

 

I wish I could be there to honor these Veterans.

  • 30 to 50 is not a number I would consider representative of the veterans.

  • Sure glad my grandson is not dumb enough to be one of them. Reminds me of John Kerry after he came back from Viet Nam.

  • According to this "mainstream media" link~ Thirty to 50 veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan....


     


    30 to 50?  They don't speak for the majority.
