Yesterday the dedication of the national World War II Memorial took place and I watched all of it (yes, all 2.5 hrs). There were some very good things said and Bob Dole commented on a very sad fact; One in every four WWII veterans has since passed away. What makes it worse is the fact that the school children of today see the war as ancient and the people who fought in it too old…

This memorial took 60 yrs. to get up. 60!! The Vietnam vet memorial was up in 10 yrs. but 60?! And people are openly criticizing the memorial, which, to me is just flat out wrong. Criticize on your own time but let the veterans remember and get closure, don’t stand around talking about how you would have changed the look of the place because it isn’t necessary.
