t r u t h o u t | Veterans Day 2010: Honor the Consciences of Our Veterans
This is a Veterans Day greeting that VFP can honor.
At my school today they held a Veterans Day breakfast. Four WWII vets were there from the local Veterans retirement home. We all stood and introduced ourselves. Every service was there but most of the participants were older, perhaps the experiences for us have faded and are less painful. I stood and identified my service and my Vietnam tour of duty and ended with "I am proud to be a member of Veterans for Peace". There were several affirming nods in the crowd from other veterans. It felt good.
