Marxist's And Memorial Day

The Gin Soddened Trotskite gets it.
While this attorney from my office doesn't.
Memorial Day was founded in 1868 to honor the dead of our wars. The Civil War ended in 1865, 141 years ago.

In 1927 (79 years ago) my father took me to a Memorial Day parade. The featured unit was an open touring car with two old men in back, one in blue and one in gray, who had served in the Civil War which had ended 62 years earlier.

The memory of that parade comes back to me each Memorial Day (now 141 years after the Civil War).

How many have died in war since 1865?


Just enough, to allow him the freedom to denigrate those who did.
