Thought for Veterans’ Day

I am sure that there are many Americans who feel that the secessionist movement is a slap in the face to those who have fought and died in the American armed forces. To those people, I ask this question:

What did they fight and die for?

Their struggle abroad is our struggle at home. We are on the same side in support of our Constitution and our freedom, against those within our own borders who use government and promote warfare for their own selfish gain.

I appreciate the personal sacrifice of time, treasure, and, too often, life, of every one who served in the armed forces; including those where their Commanders-in-Chief were ill-prepared for the outcome, or where the initial purpose was unclear; because their sacrifice was for the right reasons, even if the wars they fought were conceived for the wrong ones.
