Veterans of this war deserve a memorial and will get one. The question is whether or not it should be federal funds or private donors. Of course if they can have private donors they should. These disgusting ungratful self-entitled citizens that have the gall to spit on the sacrifices made by veterans is mind shattering. How have these people been raised? Service members do not serve with a political agenda, politics is played by politicians not soldiers or warriors. The men and women that fought and died did so because that was their duty and job it wasn't to criticize the war it was to fight it. The global war on terrorism say what you will of all it flaws but leave your discontent with the politicians and the war not the men who fought and payed the ultimate price.
