To me, everyone who's ever worn an American military uniform is a brother and sister, and every military grave represents a personal family loss.
In the sixth year of the current war, though, the testimonials, parades and other ceremonies of remembrance don't ease the loss or inspire patriotic gratitude. The only way to truly honor our fallen is to stop making more of them. Not a single trooper fell in the hope that future generations would go to battle. We all fought hoping to end the fighting, they all died so that others would live freely and in peace.
Honor the dead. End the war.
