Give Vets a Parade

It's very simple to me as a Vietnam-era veteran. Vietnam vets didn't get parade until 1985. Korean War veterans got four parades, three in 1953 and one 1954. And most importantly we had two parades for World War II, one for the war in Europe and one the war in Asia.

We can do it like St. Louis, have one for Iraq war veterans now and then one for the Afghanistan war veterans. It's simple.

Have a parade to honor our veterans.

The Defense Department has it wrong against the vast majority of Americans who want one, against every city who wants one, against all the veterans who want one. I'll be there when there is one here. I served. I didn't get a thank you. They deserve a thank you several times over.
