The most moving Memorial Day or Veterans Day ceremonies I’ve been to were those given for Viet Nam veterans. The sacrifice of the generation that fought that war was far greater because they were so unappreciated and even reviled for doing it. Yesterday, I went to the East Coast Harley-Davidson dealer in Dumfries, Va. to watch the kick-off of the Rolling Thunder ride to Washington. It’s a stunning sight to see all those bikes leaving the small lot in an orderly military fashion. Despite all the noise it is very solemn and those guys are filled with pride and honor. There was a guest speaker, a Marine Corps SgtMaj who told a story of a young Lance Corporal who gave his life saving his comrades while at the same time denying the enemy the ability to seize the weapons they had left behind when grenades were thrown on the rooftop they were defending in Fallujah. These stories are typical of the men we produce in this country and there is no shortage of these stories among Viet Nam vets. We are very lucky in this country to have such men, and we need to return to the basic values and traditions of this country that have made us strong in order to keep producing them. We will always have enemies. If you aren’t attending a ceremony this year, try to go to a ceremony for Viet Nam vets on Veteran’s Day. God Bless them!
