Remembering the Lost.

Today is Memorial Day in the US, a day to remember the fallen men and women of our armed forces.  Just a thought from me--not all the casualties occur on the battlefield and some occur many years later.  Even if a service member comes home from battle they may have other battles to fight because of their service.  Vietnam era veterans are still dying from their exposure to Agent Orange, Iraqi war veterans suffer fibromalgia from exposure to nerve gas, today's veterans suffer from PTSD in huge numbers (and are committing suicide because of it in record numbers.)  War never stops, pray for peace.

Like our ANZAC Day and every year I shake my head at the dreadful way our government treats returned service personnel. We have the same issues as you do in the US.
