But let us not forget the thousands of men and women who served in this war. Over 30,000 of them are already at home recovering from wounds received and trying to recover their lives as well. It is time for the rest of us-- whether we approved of the war or not ( I most certainly did not from beginning to end) to honor the service of the people who fought and not to forget them. I am ashamed when I read that more than 200,000 Iraq vets are homeless or of the vets who can't get jobs or whose homes are being foreclosed on. This is just not right.
Lets breathe a sigh of relief and give the soldiers a big welcome home-- but most of all, let's acknowledge their service by seeing that we treat them right once they are back home. Only then can we really say:
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! ( at last)
