Very well said, and T/Y VERY MUCH for the acknowledgement. Lately, over the past years I've questioned my own service because I feel that my service... the 1st gulf war, does not measure up 2 the sacrifices that our currant force has made.. The real fact is I gave what I had at my time and I should be able to hold my head up because I was there and stood up! But these REAL heroes who've done 2++ tours are well BEYOND heroic and I think of them daily! God Bless them all! I'm in awe of our troops, all of em.

The only 20th Century war that could remotely be described as 'just' is the Second World War and after that, it all gets a bit messy. I have sympathy and gratitude for the troops who were led into the unnecessary slaughter of the First war, as well as those shot for supposed cowardice, when in fact they had PTSD. I also commemorate every civilian death, on all sides.

These days troops are professionals, fighting for their governments - that's the truth of it. No one forced them to fight, they chose it as a career. Even so, they are still treated like rubbish by their employers, left damaged mentally and physically by both fighting and the process of making them soldiers in the first place. On Remembrance Sunday my strongest thought is to wonder if we're so advanced, why haven't we established a better way of resolving conflicts yet?
