We Got It Wrong
I think that by now most Americans recognize that we got it wrong in not acknowledging the courage, the valor, and the commitment of the men and women of our armed forces who fought an unpopular war. I also think they are now resolved never to let that happen again.
That's important. Because as hard and as all-consuming as war is, we cannot forget its aftermath. The broken bodies, the broken minds, and the broken families that require the continued attention of a grateful nation.
