Neighborhoodwalk Salute to Vets

For some reason, 11-11 was picked as a day to do this joint project for a "neighborhoodwalk." This gives good cause to offer up a walk that is a salute to all veterans. Honor, peace and wellness to all. Thanks for your service, in the past, present and future.

Let's hope -- as in HOPE -- that the United States does a great job in giving care to all our vets in the future with a robust VA Medical System. That is where the healthcare discussion should always begin.

And, let's HOPE that few men and women are injured and killed in service in the weeks, months and years to come.

John K: How about hoping for victory. Does that ever enter anybodies mind. In WW2 we celebrated our successes and miminized our failures. Now we highlight our failures and miminize our successes. We seem to have made victory a bad word. Long live the United States and success to the Marines.

My top hope is for freedom. Being free is valued more than victory. Victory enters my mind.

If our successes result in more freedom for us and others -- then let's celebrate.

Long live the United States as a land of the free and home of the brave.

Well-played, Mark. Victory and defeat are too easily politicized, but freedom is something we can all agree on.
