Examples To Celebrate

Thanks to our media, Lynndie England and John Walker Lindh, an abuser and a traitor, are the most recognizable names from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq for most American citizens. It took the tragic death of reluctant celebrity Pat Tillman to get Americans talking about heroism, sacrifice and patriotism on the part of American soldiers. We're still waiting for the media to balance the one story about abuses with some of the hundreds of stories of good works, reconstruction, compassion, and encouragement by our military.

On this Memorial Day, I thought I'd post Kate O'Beirne's look at some examples of "The Soldiers You Never Hear About". Good stuff. (via LGF)
