Doesn't help either that we have a generation of adults who are selfish and care only of themselves. A generation where everything is expected to be handed to them with minimal effort put in. Its a soft and easily impressionable generation. How do I know this? Because I train this generation in preparation of future wars and I am sadly disappointed with what I see. A generation that has no regard for morals, ethics, or values. Our nation is in a lot of trouble.

I know why I stand for the flag. I know why every year I have a moment of silence. I know what I fought for in Iraq and Afghanistan, I just hope the American people do not forget or diminish the importance of this day. and ultimately, I hope we as a nation do not get so complacent that history repeats itself as we focus on tearing ourselves apart trying to overthrow our own government.
