Veterans' Day

Please send thanks and good wishes to any veterans you know today. No matter the cause for which they fought, or the theater in which they fought, they chose to serve their country, and deserve our respect.

And as I listen to Dick (Cheney) rumble on about how much we owe United States veterans, I think about how much his administration has done to reduce or remove as many post-service benefits and aid programs as they can.

Remember who votes to give veterans the thanks they deserve and the assistance they so often need, and who wants to just turn off the lights at Walter Reed Memorial Hospital.
