A MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE TO WWII VETERANS

OUR WWII VETERANS ARE DYING AT A RATE OF AROUND 2,000 A DAY. SOON THEY WILL ALL BE GONE. ALL TOO OFTEN THEY ARE FORGOTTEN UNTIL TROTTED OUT FOR A PARADE OR SPEECHIFYING.

THESE OLD MEN WERE YOUNG ONCE. THEY LINED UP FOR BLOCKS OUTSIDE RECRUITERS' OFFICES AFTER PEARL HARBOR. THEY OFFERED UP THEIR LIVES TO DEFEND AMERICA AGAINST TWO IMPERIALISTIC POWERS WHO WOULD CONQUER THE WORLD.

THE DEBT OF GRATITUDE OWED THEM AND THEIR FALLEN COMRADES CAN NEVER BE PAID. IF NOT FOR THEM, MANY OF US WOULD HAVE BEEN SENT TO THE GAS CHAMBERS AND NO PROGENY WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY. THOSE WHO WERE ALLOWED TO LIVE IN SLAVERY WOULD BE SPEAKING GERMAN OR JAPANESE.
