lost my son due to deployment overseas. You think they would change laws or something, nope lets leave to the states which have failed us. They ( the US senators) say it is a state issue. Last time I check I was a US Soldier not a state worker. The President and rest don't really care, not gonna change

How could you have custody of your son while you were deployed ? If you lost custody of your son ,it was because you are an unfit parent ,not because you VOLUNTEERED to serve in the military .

Unfit? No I lost custody because she used my deployment against me like several other parents. Google and find out instead of making and an uniformed and ignorant comment. I had custody of my son for seven years prior. I had DCYF involved and they testified on my behalf (she had DCYF involved with another son). Didn't matter the judge used the time away against me.

If you really want to support the military, use them for defense and not for pointless and useless wars. Afghanistan has turned into a modern 'war on drugs, - a failure by almost any measure, but politically a bigger hit if you stop it rather that just throw money at it and hope the people don't realize it's true costs.

what happened to honoring the soldiers.

I guess you can't trust HP posters for anything, even staying on topic to honor our national heroes.

There was a 6th way to honor our military. That way is moot now. Voting AGAINST Obama would have really helped our military (end of pointless wars, soon-to-stop health care for military veterans, reduction of support for spouses at home, etc.). I doubt if this holiday will even exist in the USA 4 years from now.

You are totally wrong.

ONLY TRAITORS LIE ABOUT OBAMA'S RECORD WITH OUR MILITARY .

OBAMA'S DONE MORE FOR OUR MILITARY THAN BOTH BUSHES , REAGAN ,

FORD AND NIXON , COMBINED
=================================================================

THE SANE PEOPLE REMEMBER BUSH JR. ILLEGALLY EXTENDIND TOURS

OF DUTY , TROOP ROTATIONS , FORCING THE NATIONAL GUARD INTO

ACTIVE DUTY AND ALLOWING THE VA SYSTEM TO TURN INTO A GHETTO .

today we honor those who have served,
put their lives on the line, be they active or
reserves.
today we honor the men, woman, animals of war,
who fought so that wars would someday be no more.
we hope that these battles will soon be won,
that peace will rise, and wars, be none.
we salute those who have left us, and those
who remain.
trying to make sense of the madness, the sorrow
the pain

These are very disturbing stats...some of the money that was wasted on those election commercials could have made a world of difference helping any one of these worthy organizations. What a shameful waste of money....

Not mentioning the sacrifice they made for the military industry, increasing the wealth of its owners and executives. The major reason why the wars were started at the first time, beside the personal vendetta between the Bush family and Saddam.

The spaces between your words make the most sense.

Hmmm...really? It had nothing to do with four commercial jets being hijacked and 3,000+ people being murdered?

Actually rockymtnal, Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11, most of the hijackers were Saudis whose royal family were buds with Bush. They trained in places like Afghanistan, Germany and the USA. So I was called up to fight in Iraq.

You seem to be as ignorant as Kristen Neel, but it's your choice not remaining ignorant. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. It was an excuse for the Bush family to sacrifice American servicemen/women as cannon fodder in their personal vendetta against Saddam. And at the same time increase the wealth of the owners and executives of the oil industry, of which they are a part. And funny enough, it was not difficult to find Americans willing to die for them. If not at the battlefield, but by their own hand back home.

Yes, and the neocon crusaders wanting to grab Iraqi oil in the name of Christianity just as they had hoped to go after Iran's oil under the Thurston and Lovey banner, but they didn't get elected. Thanks voters. The reason for 9-11 and the previous attacks is because Geo "prissy" Bush arrogantly and stupidly put our troops on Saudi soil that is Moslem holy ground and the radical sects retaliated. Bush 1 lived in a bubble and relied on his friends to tell him everything going on and was totally out of touch with reality and on Halcion. The final insult was installing his nit-wit son.

Perhaps Obama could have let their votes count in all their states; instead of deliberately "losing" them or throwing away the milkitary vote; which was predominently for the republicans!!

I always laugh at these statements, but then again there are many who actually believe the military is larger republican. It's just a slice of the average demographics with all the good and bad that entails. I served for almost 8 years and there were always lots on different political views.

What exactly dose mcdonaldwil's comment have to do with with this article? I served decades in the military, including about 15 years overseas, including 13 months in Iraq, and I am a proud liberal who saw Democrats help military people, while Republicans helped defense contractors.

You forgot the most important way. Try to talk young men and women out of joining the military. Make them reinstitute the draft. That will stop most of the wars we get into.

That is 100% correct! The reason Iraq last a decade and Afghanistan shows no end is sight is because not that many people are in the military. Everyone currently there knew the risk when they enlisted, so no anti-war protests. When they die needlessly, it's a tragedy, but a private one.

You do realize that America can no longer depend on a Draft . Only about one out of twenty applicants are qualified to go to Marine Recruit training . America's young people are in the worse shape in history . I spent two years as a Marine Recruiter in the NE and MANY of the young men could not do one push-up or one pull-up . Many failed the drug test or had a criminal background .
I support any one who joins the military . I served with draftees in Viet Nam and they were the worse . The finest young men and women in America serve in our military .

You are now getting the worst of American youth who want to join, they can not get jobs for the reasons you stated.. If you start the draft I believe things would change. And maybe even stop all this war mongering. You forgot that during the second wold war the draft was in and they became Americas greatest generation. Ask Spielberg..
