Well said, Michael. The bravery that many, many members of the military have shown is truly extraordinary. By all means, we should use the freedoms enumerated--but not granted--in our Bill of Rights and founding documents as a way to reinforce the notion these rights were, and are, worth the sacrifice so many have made.

Perhaps the most patriotic and meaningful way to honor America's service men and women is to force our civilian leadership, both Democrat and Republican, to bring these folks home from around the world, in so many places where we have no business being. Effective defense and deterrence, absolutely. Military adventurism and empire building...never.

And take care of each of them after they come home, and their loved ones when they don't.
