Those who served and those who didn't

This evening an article appeared in The New York Times which deserves to have broad distribution.

This article in the New York Times appeared this evening, after the Journal-World had featured the following article early in the morning. Later in the day, the Journal-World took this article completely off from the front page of the web edition, even though it and its commentary were extremely relevant for Memorial Day.

My only thought has to be that the Journal-World didn't want the veteran's comment section below the article. Ironically, it was one of the most on-the-point commentaries I have seen recently in the Journal-World.

I hope that this article comes to the attention of Jonathan Duncan, and the VFW, as well as many others. I am very impressed with Duncan, but not impressed with the VFW at all. The VFW should be turning its attention to the issues set forth in this article (also for Memorial Day), but if it it has, I haven't heard about it.

There is much I have to say on this subject, but the article is so excellent, and so true, that it speaks for itself. Please be sure to read the comments, too.

And I still have no answer from the Journal-World about how many of its staff reporters are veterans.
