What sacrifice. I pray he is home now.

My father never said anything about WW2. Because he never came back. Not even his body. He was a pilot in the Army Air Corps and was lost in 1943. I was one and a half years old.
Then I ended up being a Marine Corps lt. in Viet Nam. Right on the front in Khe Sanh during the action. I heard myself saying many times "what the fuck am I doing here". Never could answer that question.
Then both my sons went off to Iraq as Marine Corps officers. See if that doesn't jerk you around. Again I asked myself "what are the boys doing over there"? What is to be gained. Still can't answer that one either.
I wouldn't mind dying for my country. But I sure would like to know it was for a good reason. Does anyone out there really believe Japan was going to invade the U.S. Were the Vietnamese? The Iraqis? Or perhaps the Afghan navy?
Obama and the Clintons have shown the real danger to our life style is right here at home. That's where we need to be fighting.
