My daughter is doing her clinicals for nursing school at the local VA hospital. She texted me last night rather disgusted and txting "This is what is wrong with America!" . She told me her patient was a Purple Heart recipient. . She mentioned it to the other nursing student who asked her what that was!!My daughter told her it was a medal of honor--the other student then asked what she meant by that!!! She had to explain the meaning of it. She was so disgusted that an "educated" student had no idea what a Purple Heart signified. What do they teach in our schools?Answer Question

My dad also received 2 Purple Hearts for his service in Viet Nam. As a child I thought they were really cool. As an adult, it puts a lump in my throat and brings tears to my eyes when I about the horror he faced then and the horror facing our soldiers now. God bless those who have served, are serving and will serve.

My Grandfather received one. At his funeral his fellow Army buddies explained to me and my siblings the meaning of "VALOR Displayed in combat". We learned more that day than ANY history lesson. I wish high school students could receive history lectures from those who have served. But alas, I think there are "SOME" who would attempt to portray any such lectures sadly as some sort of propaganda for recruitment. :::::::sigh:::::::::

So how bad is it that the only thing I have kept down in 3 days is Dr. Pepper?
