Why they were veterans

Here are two US military veterans who were born 100 years ago.

Norma (Hanson) Holmes (undated)

Kenneth Holmes. Ca. 1944.

They served in the Second World War. Their motivations for service were complicated, I think. But what they served for, I know, was not to have a country whose political and business leaders apologize for Naziism on the grounds of expediency.

Honor our veterans.

Stand up for what is good and right, not for what puts others behind you.
