Veterans’ sacrifices need to be remembered

As Veteran’s Day nears I find myself thinking about what the citizens of our country did during World War II. I fear that children of the Baby Boomers have very little cognizance of what their grandparents and great-grandparents sacrificed for their families and their country. Not to be forgotten are the U.S. servicemen and servicewomen of the Korean Conflict and the War in Vietnam as well as the more recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The treatment that today’s members of the Armed Forces receive is likely a direct result of the mistreatment of the Vietnam era service members. Many people now thank veterans regardless of time of service for their service – rightfully so.
