Veterans Day

What started out as Armistice Day in remembrance of the end of the first World War continues today as Veterans day. And after all these years we haven’t figured out how to stop sending our young men and women into battle.

This year, cruelly, the Fort Hood shootings came barely six days ahead of the holiday, and President Obama’s speech yesterday (above, 15:00 in) became, in fact, an early, eloquent appreciation of American veterans.

If you’re one of them, thank you.
