So President Trump has ordered a military parade to honor the sacrifice and bravery of our military. I think it is a great idea and long overdue.

He is honoring the military and giving our people the opportunity to thank them for their sacrifice. There should also be fly-overs of cities that don’t have parades, so people will understand that their military is watching over and protecting them.

I remember military parades when I was a kid. They were great. They teach our children to honor the military, unlike the treatment we got when returning from Vietnam in 1970 when we were spit upon in uniform.

Even with all of the sins of the Obama regime over the last eight years, nothing compares with the shameful treatment of veterans by the Democratic Party during the Vietnam War. It will be a black stain in American history that will never be forgiven.
