To all the soldiers in the world, past, present and future, thank you. Thank you for serving your country without question, and for giving up so much, sometimes the ultimate sacrifice: paying with your life.
On behalf of the United States of America, I apologize for entangling you in imperialistic fights over such silliness as oil, power, the threat (what threat?) of communism and the continuation of the military/industrial complex. For all the ridiculous reasons you were sent off to fight, I apologize on behalf of this country, because I know you were told you were doing something noble. And you were. Thanks for believing in a country I no longer believe in. You are honorable in your devotion.
