Don't Forget the Meaning of Memorial Day
posted by Scott on Monday May 27, @12:10PM
from the news dept.
News Mensactivism.org would like to take a moment to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Although we'll hear a lot of politically correct talk about the "men and women" who died in war, the overwhelming majority of them were men. Memorial Day should be inclusive of women but not to the point that we forget that men have shouldered and continue to carry the burden of dying for our ideals and way of life.

We should remember that American veterans were virtuous individuals to whom we owe our individual rights,safety, and liberty. To that end, I wish to give my personal thanks to all U.S. veterans. I would like to give my special thanks to my father, 1st Lt. Thomas Mitchell Shaw, who served with the U.S. Army Infantry in the European theatre during W.W. II and to my American Revolutionary Ancestor, Captain Robert Paine, who was a physician and who served as the commander of a company of patriot soldiers. I served with the U.S. Army;4th Inf. Div.;2/8th Inf.;Republic of Vietnam 1969-1970
