when one of our young men or women sign up to put there life on the line for this country.
This country should sign up to look after there every need when the can no longer serve!
we do it for scroungers, why not for our HEROES.

my Dad fought in WW11 with the RCAF, flying in bombers as a wireless operator, and I also had a couple of uncles, my Dad's brothers , who also fought for the cause in WW11. I think it is so important a cause, that Nov. 11th should be declared a National Holiday....

Kimberly Scissum Goldsby

This cause is important to me because soldiers pay the ultimate price for our freedom.

My father, father-in-law, and most of my uncles served in WW2; and I have other friends who also served in the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Many of my peers also served in the Persian Gulf War. There is nothing more noble than the soldierly virtue of our military forces. They deserve this recognition. Let me steal a quote from President Barak Obama: "It is the right thing to do."
