  1. Heartbreaking. Beyond those who deceived this man with war-for-money (and yeah, he got a paycheck) it looks like his heart really was about serving liberty. And at 100 years old, he still cares, still is able to care. I got a feeling his tears just might reach a few people and bring them on-board. What a cruel betrayal of a man who likely thought he was fighting for freedom. I’d like him to know of the millions who are in the fight for our Bill of Rights. Might do his heart some good.


  2. Brought tears to my eyes as well. Seeing all that symbology plastered onto his uniform made it extra sad to think that for him, they stand for honour, but for those who awarded them to him, they stand for ownership of their cannon fodder who believed their lies.

    1. It’s heartbreaking because he sees it. How many people did he watch die on both sides?
      “ He’s wrong. This IS the country he got because of the government he fought for. Wakey wakey”
      Sorry, yet the finger can be pointed both ways, no?

      1. He doesn’t see it and that’s my point. He believes he fought for the country. We here are active as we can at the moment in identifying and resisting the tyranny he actively took part in committing atrocities and treason against. False equivalency but if you believe they are the same, have at it.

  3. Doesn’t sound like he realizes what has happened.
    Only comparing the advanced police state to when he was young.
    Donning his uniform is a clue.
    Maybe he thought FDR was the best thing since sliced bread.

    1. Agreed, Hal. He still wears it with pride and that is the testament to his ignorance. It was nothing to be proud of.

      1. Yep.
        And I agree with your statement above.
        “Wakey wakey”
        The picture on the dog food bag isn’t for the dog.
