On Veterans Day, the nation honors all who served. On Memorial Day, it specifically honors the ones who fell.

Initially, this celebration was created to commemorate the Civil War. Today, however, the thoughts of most Americans are probably focused on the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines killed in the very recent Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

 

 

Their shortened lives contain many valuable lessons for their countrymen. One lesson is about patriotism and heroism — the extent of the sacrifice that brave men and women will make for their country when called to do so.

Their experience also demonstrates that political leaders' decisions have grave consequences. Every time America's leaders choose to engage in war — whether their decision is wise or foolish, right or wrong, justified or unjustified — they are sending a force of mostly young men, just out of their teenage years, to go and break things and kill people with maximum force and speed. Those young people make the U.S. military the world's greatest, but they always serve at the risk of paying the ultimate price. Even in the most glorious victory, many are sure to fall.

Today marks the first Memorial Day since the Biden administration's ignominious failure in its withdrawal from Afghanistan. President Joe Biden has since defended his actions with the accurate observation that a withdrawal had to happen at some point. But this hardly suffices to explain how he has dishonored the dead.:snip:
