In response to Mike Sakal’s piece on the sons of confederate vets: Mike you should have thought a little more than a cup of coffee before you wrote this piece on the confederate vets.
There was a reason all those men had unmarked graves and it wasn’t so we could remember them on Veterans Day either. Maybe you should have wrote about why they were in unmarked graves!
I think it is a real shame you couldn’t find more relevant, more meaningful tribute to write about on our USA Veterans Day.
Yes they did fight for a cause they believed in and some of them did die for that cause and they were soldiers for that cause as Mr. Brown says, but they were traitors and slave owners and killed and tortured those slaves when they didn’t listen to what they were told.
Lets have a John Wilkes Booth Day. He had a cause also.
They raped the slave women and their wives turned their back on them because they weren’t human but slaves. This kind of reminds me of a little war that was in Europe in the ’40s. Maybe we should have a day to honor Mr. Hitler. He had a cause to fight for also. Just ask the
6 million Jewish people he invited to take a shower!
Mr. Sakal, please don’t get in that, they were Americans too because in reality they were traitors. The man that blew up the federal building in Oklahoma, Tim McVeigh, also had cause. Are we going to honor him in 100 years as a veteran who had a cause? Maybe, who knows?
