Katherine Kersten's Korner

Today's Kersten kolumn is a screed-less tribute to today, Veteran's Day. It talks about a site in Rochester that is devoted to veterans, something that I did not know about (it's nice to learn new things). Kersten must have taken her sanity pills today, and we can all be glad.

It is important to remember today. With public sentiment running against the current Iraq war, news stories about prisoner abuse and some questionable tactics used by our soldiers, it may be hard to think about all those veterans who lived and died doing only the best for this country. The vast majority of people who have served the U.S. in our armed forces were good, decent people, because they were our neighbors, our friends, and our family members. Let's not let the few bad apples or the current leadership of our country overshadow the sacrifices that these fine people have been making for over 200 years, first to create a country based on freedom, and then to protect it when it was in peril.
