Thread Name: BS: I met a real war hero
Subject: RE: BS: I met a real war hero
Both of my parents were veterans of WWII. Dad in India and Burma area and Mom in various places stateside, then in Japan for 18 months after the end of the war. Both would have detested the current warlike posturing of the American government. Both (inadvertently!) died on holidays--Dad on Veteran's Day, Mom six months later on Memorial Day. Given their druthers, I think both would have elected to die on less significant days on the calendar.
