Memorial Day by Pvt. Keepout

Pvt. Keepout is one of the better commenter's at the Left Coaster.
Many soldiers will come home with a hole where faith in government integrity was ripped out by craven cynical thieves and arrogant glycerine fools. Scar tissue will grow over it and new experience will crowd it aside, but the deep fundamental betrayal of American values personally felt by these profoundly patriotic men and women will never be redressed or even acknowleged by their culture, family, friends and lovers.

They will always stand a bit apart from the conventional celebration, commerce and community that denies their wound through ridicule and indifference. They will never quite fit in anywhere ever again. They will be America's most valuable citizens because they'll never stop asking, "why?" - Pvt. Keepout, May 26, 2007
