The point is what that all those men THOUGHT they were fighting for was important enough for them to give their lives.

Ok, first of all, there are veterans from the Civil War buried there. Secondly, it doesn't matter what you think, or claim to know about the purpose of subsequent wars. The point is what that all those men THOUGHT they were fighting for was important enough for them to give their lives. Are you saying that these men all fought for the reasons you stated? Even if that wasn't the case, they died believing that they were fighting for "freedom". Also, even though victory in World War II may not have directly resulted in freedom in your eyes, there were many people it did directly affect for the better. These men did not take an oath to uphold the claims you make.edit on 9-1-2013 by Frettin because: (no reason given)
