    Vets protected us, let's protect their Second Amendment rights

    For too many people, the Memorial Day weekend just means a big sale down at the Bellevue, Southcenter or Tacoma malls, a visit to the Folklife Festival in Seattle, or a three-day camping trip to the drier east side of the mountains.



    Others, however, take time to reflect and remember a father, uncle, brother or – perhaps most sadly of all – a son or daughter, who will never again be at the 4th of July family picnic, Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas party for “the rest of their lives.”

    A fine article, Mr Workman.

    This Memorial Day takes on a slightly more significant meaning, as my wife just shipped out to boot camp two weeks ago. My thanks go out to all who served, and especially those who didn't come home.

    Your article was great. It is sad that so many people have forgotten that the only reason that we can live the kind of lives we do is because of the people who have fought and died for the freedoms we take for granted every day.

    Dave, as well written as your articles are, it's a shame you dont write for a well publicized newspaper.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    Occasionally I do.
    A piece I did will be in the Chicago Sun-Times this weekend.

    Thank you for your generous comments.

    Dave,

    Link to article in Chicago Sun Times?

    Thanks!

    Edit: I can't believe I asked that question while I had the internet in front of me...

    For everyone else, here is the link

    Thank you to all vets! I am sitting here enjoying some time with family who have served, and a friend who lost his brother 2.5 yrs ago. Sgt. Zachery Tellier died fighting to save the lives of his brothers. I was with my friend when he got that call from his mother. She had to tell him that his brother had died. Not a great morning, but one that I will never forget.

    God Bless the men, women and family that fight for our freedoms.
