American PatriotismA letter to the Toledo Blade from a Vietnam veteran. Sensible words for those who demonize their fellow citizens for holding our leaders accountable. Courageous words for the rest of us who demand the truth:
As a veteran of the Vietnam conflict, I know all too well the discontent I felt on my homecoming: A terrible sense of abandonment from citizens of a country that, at the time, I believed had forsaken me for my sense of patriotic duty.[Via Daily Dissent.]
