I know that today we remember the noble slain, and I saw a bumper sticker a few days ago that declared the owner of said SUV automobile was a Veteran of America’s Foreign Wars. That’s a pretty big list, considering only the War of Independence and the Civil War were truly fought on American soil.
So I thought a memorial to the Victims of America’s Foreign Wars, or the VFW, might be good thing today. But I just got so damned depressed, counting bodies for profit.
“I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.”
