Joe Hare: Dedicating school day to Veteran's a good idea, but . . .
. . . Commander of VFW Post 6097 cannot see schools doing this for the whole day.
Comments response to: A New Approach to observing Veterans Day: In the Schools.

By Joe Hare
Ms. Fudge's comments are a good idea, if they were carried out. I can not see our schools doing this for the whole day.
If they were to decide to do this then they should do it for Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Martin Luther King Day. They actually take two day for Thanksgiving. I also can not see our system doing this either.
So why slap the Veterans in the face, when we are the ones that have protected the freedoms to have all these holidays.
Without the American Veteran we would be living under the rule of some dictator similar to Hilter. Read your history if we had not went to Europe and bled and died American was the next target because France and England was about to lose the war.
If you can not stand behind us Veterans, then why don't you try standing in front of us, instead of hiding behind us.
