Now, Dolores, let us start a campaign to make the Veteran's Hall a center for PEACE. For all the exceptional service and sacrifice of our veterans, we need to find a much better answer to global community than the ignorance of WAR.

I felt such pain in your simple request. My niece is serving in Afghanistan and writes often about the people's pain in facing war and not finding solice in the uniforms of our young service people. She clearly understands that a step too far will likely kill her so she simply is saddened by the lack of avenue for resolve.
"Other than WAR, auntie, what have we done to make people free of the burdens of their governments?"
I wish I had an answer. But I know she will return early next month and not see herself as a veteran. She will see herself as a victim of war among all the victims in Afghanistan."
I hope I am not right that there are no answers,

I agree and add that we should be making every effort to stop creating more veterans of wars. I had hoped that Viet Nam would have defined war's futility but our ignorant leadership savagely enjoys the options to wage war without true cause.
Here's to PEACE,
Hank, also USArmy Viet Nam
