Veterans Day and what it should mean to you

But today. We have this: -Trump to speak at opening of NYC Veterans Day parade on Monday

President Trump will address veterans and military officials to open the Veterans Day Parade in New York City next week.

Trump will speak at the opening ceremony of the 100th edition of the annual parade at Madison Square Park in Manhattan, the White House said Wednesday. Trump is the first sitting president to accept the invitation to address the event, which is hosted by the United Veterans War Council.

After delivering remarks at the outset of the parade, Trump will lay a wreath at the Eternal Light Memorial in the park.

I don't know about you but, this isn't a way to honor veterans and to march in a parade, in a place which you said GOODBYE to and leave for FLORIDA!

    Veteran's Day and Memorial Day are all the same to me. Days I get drunk thinking about my brothers that didn't come home. My family, friends, loved ones, those men and women that didn't have the chance to have the lives I was afforded. Often times they are very sullen days for me. I smile and thank anyone that thanks me for my service, but behind the smile my heart is dark and cold, but that's just one thing that sometimes happens when you have survivor's guilt. Just like the many days before I find myself sitting alone in a bar, my mind filled with my brother's faces, wondering what type of lives they would have had if only.
    Is this still revelant?

    Actually, since 1989, President Bill Clinton is the only President to Honor the Laying of the Wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier All 8 Years He Served his Presidency. President George H. W. Bush, Pesident George W. Bush, and President Barack Obama all have gone elsewhere on Veterans Day at least once during their Presidencies. One year President George H. W. Bush just went to Camp David for Vacation and did nothing on Veterans Day (I will say he himself was a War Veteran and Deserved a Break).
