Tomorrow is veterans day here in the US . Anyone who has ever taken the time to speak with one of these awesome people has enriched themselves greatly . Seize the opportunity to thank a veteran tomorrow or anytime , Im sure you'll enrich their life a little and yours as well .

I had the chance to meet a few vietnam vets that saw combat and somehow made it back to US soil and their stories haunt me so I can only imagine how they felt when no one welcomed them back home , only chided them relentlessly .

Check these out if you can , thanks -

My great-grand dad died at the age of 32 fighting the Germans (with Hitler) in WWI in Flanders Fields. He was a survivor of the Titanic as a passenger but he died fighting Flanders Fields when they opened up the water so the enemy together with the allied troops got drowned. How sad a story this must be, a survivor of the Titanic drowning in his own backyard (15 miles from his home) fighting a war. Hitler was based in WWI in Flanders Fields in the area where we come from, that's when and where he wrote Mein Kampf. My great-grand mom had to raise 3 kids as a widow, one of them my grand dad, I can assure you that's no easy thing in 1917. She never remarried or lived with another man in her life.

Thank you for liberating us, WWI was a really nasty war and my family always talks about it 'the big war' 9 million people were killed in WWI

Today war is like white noise. It is continuous , it is in the background and we have tuned it out. It is still harsh reality for the soldiers in the war zones. Our media does them a great injustice with how little press coverage they receive. I cannot imagine how it must feel to risk your life and be so forgotten. Military suicides eclipsed combat deaths this summer if that gives any clue. Everyday should be veterans day until all these brave people are returned safely to their homes.

Maybe we should reinstate the draft except this time for those over 45 years old instead of stealing the lives of young people - and no deferments under any circumstance. Politicians should be drafted first since it is their idea that war is the only solution. Politicians are easily replaced and perhaps this time with only 18 to 21 year olds.

I like the politician idea; the guy down the block suggested a while back, somewhat seriously, replacing all of the politicians with a range of people picked -- drafted -- randomly from the phone book. Get them some minimal training and install them in D.C. It sounds better to me now then it did back then. The real problem though, is not the individuals but the system itself, which has too many layers of crap to overcome unless it just breaks down to some threshold that would allow it to be reformed.

I actually think that a National service draft would be a good thing -- easy for me to say, I am 59 and already served back in 72'-74', one of the last of the draftees -- it would provide jobs/training, a way for young people to learn skills (but it wouldn't be all military), interact with different people, work on 'infrastructure', get a sense of purpose and maybe some respect that they don't have much of now. Probably won't be happening in the land of entitlement.
