    Is it your belief that continuing to try to make this a personal attack will somehow take the light from the stupid post made by the rep from the dem party or the folly of defending it?

    I BBQ everyday I can. "Man, I hope people back in the World are not out barbecuing today on Memorial Day", said no GI in a faraway land ever.

    But you know what the VA is still running like a three legged dog. Veteran's often cannot get adequate mental health care. Veteran's often still find it difficult getting jobs paying living wages once they rejoin civilian life.

    In my opinion most veterans would prefer to give up discounts at Bubba's Squat & Gobble and other fine establishments; they would prefer to give up the now almost national feel good patriotic moment requirement to honor a military person before every sporting or public event and they wouldn't give a rat's ass about barbecuing on any day IF America would actively force the government to honor the commitment it made to veterans when vets raised their right hands and to stop the habit of throwing them into harm's way when it isn't completely necessary.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    You are allowed to grill food, however you should otherwise be sitting in ashes and practicing self-flagellation. Ice cream is definitely out of the question.

    Or the folly of attacking Obama for enjoying an ice cream cone?

    Gazing upon an open flame or coals can be a calming and mesmerizing experience.

    Do both at the same time.

    Re: Is it acceptable to BBQ on Memorial Day?

    Our VFW had a BBQ with pulled pork and tenderloins--does that count?

    After a bouquet tossed in the river for those lost at Sea, we had a great service in our park's War Memorials with many words still with me.

    It's always good to teach the kids about the ## names on the World War stone--since it was engraved before WW2--and the ## names from WW2.

    Kids were asking about the ## from Vietnam because their ranks are given with their branch of service--and ## from Korea.
    Quite the sacrifice for a small town.

    Have you received a card from the VA or a Nearby Mental Health Clinic yet?
    One of the Commanders spoke of it today and wasn't too pleased with the confusion coming from th VA.
    I'm surmising it was about PTSD and will look into it.
    Sounds like out-reach clinics the VA may use at local Hospitals with excellent Mental Health Clinics .
