“Today is the 74th anniversary of World War II’s ‘Operation Overlord’ — D-Day — when 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces came ashore along five beaches on 50-mile stretch of France’s Normandy region. That day alone, more than 4,000 Allied troops lost their lives and thousands more were wounded. We honor and remember the service of all who were there.” – from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs facebook page
And this comment is one of the ones following the above post:
“ I don’t understand why we people in this country can not talk and listen to one another view points and respect each other. Such hate on both sides. As a veteran I personally stand but I fought for all to have the right to kneel and i may not agree with it but I just turn the channel. It is their right to kneel as it’s my right to stand. Just as I have a right to my beliefs so do others. If you don’t agree don’t watch the game.”
This veteran and so many others “get it.” Those who’ve never worn the uniform but chant the insane rhetoric, “Love it or leave it!” don’t.
We feel sorry for these aging shells who shout false bravado!
