In Response to Re: Happy Memorial Weekend!:
The best way we can honor the soldiers who have bee sent into harms way is t make sure others do not suffer the same fate of ptsd, and coming back home to become homeless or unemployed because ofthe horrors they suffered and the the horrors they inflicted on civilian populations. These young men, most of whom are working class, are lied to by tboth the brass and the politicans who send them to Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere. They are sent there to help Exxon-Mobil and big oil to monoplize the energy rersources of the Mid East and Central Asia. It has nothing to do with terrorism. If that was the case Al Quaeda with all of its 500 or so fighterwes would have been exterminated a long time ago. N0 its about making deals with opium producers like Karzai in Afghanistan , so the big oil boys can get that pipeline built to the huge natural gas fields in neighboring Turkmenistan. These youn men sent to do the dirty work to make these Wall Street billionaires richer deserve to know the truth. Patriotic lies about freedom and democracy just won't cut it any more. Freedom for who? The corporate elite? Democracy for whom? The working clas both here and abroad have no power. This democracy is all about rule of the expolters. Those bastards who squeeze every drop of profit they can from the labor of workers and then throw them in the garbage heap when they get too old, too highly paid, or too ill.
There is hope for a different future, but it won't come by flying the bosses colors, but by building a fighting movement of the working class to eventually take power for our class. That means doing a lot of work with soldiers in the military. They, just like the GI's in Vietnam who fragged their second lieutanants by the hundres and mutinied on the Kitty Hawk and Constellation aircraft carriers, can force the bosses to end these wars. They are the salt of the earth and must know the truth and be organized toi fight for the interest of those who sweat for a living. I am optimistic these wars for profit of a few at the expense of the many will be coming to an end soo9n. But that will take a lot of hard work and organizing. What else is new.?

This young Marine will not get a full pension for his service. Those shaking his hand will receive a full pension after serving four years.
