Re: How to pick a war veteran.
I think it all depends on where you are at the time we bow our heads and thank these individuals for the great courage they had to fight for our rights, our peace, and to remove the idiot leaders from this world.
Since leaving high school 5 years ago i think i have only had the chance to take that minute twice. We all know when its going to occur, but when your busy at work, fast asleep, or in the middle of something important, you cant really drop your train of thought, go into chill out mode, and then try and work again, you loose whats in your mind, and your stuck there for 5mins trying to figure it out ago.
Most people acknowledge we should praise these men and women, but not everyone can do it at the exact time. I agree though that we do take it for granted, but times were much different back in those days, you were a coward if you didnt go to War. Theres no bloody chance you would see any 15yr olds signing up to run off to war now days, they would all be fighting a much more important war on there Sony/Xbox etc etc...
Have to look at it in perspective, times have changed, lest we forget, most people have forgotten!
