    Yesterday as to 'Gold Star Mothers and Families' you were in the very rare camp of those who even cared!!

    A search yesterday, actually two, one early one late in the day, brought up extremely few mentions of the day, while all the 'patriots?' carried on their war with their fingers and the media did same but also with their mouths! None thought of the fact they've yet paid for either of these present wars nor especially the results of, oh there were a number, not surprising, of articles around the country bashing the VA and those who work in the Administration, even a few about statements of pols charged to demand those served sacrifice!!

        And where else had you heard it, especially since the Presidential Proclamation which preceded the day and was carried on sites supposedly followed by Washington and other reporters like the White House and Defense Department to name but a few!

        You missed the point, but I'm not surprised!!!

      expected it to get more views than it has, too.
