LETTER: Also in a quandary about celebrating Remembrance Day

I also agree with most of (letter writer) Keith’s reasons for not going to the Remembrance Day ceremony.

I served two tours of duty in Vietnam and support our troops.

Yet, I also agree with most of (letter writer) Keith’s reasons for not going to the Remembrance Day ceremony.

I don’t attend either. Despite all that time in Vietnam, I never understood why we were even there.

Fifty thousand young men’s lives were lost and countless lives of the Vietnamese military and civilians?

What for?

I can’t see any reason to fight in the Gulf/Middle East either, other than greed.

But why should I or anyone else fight for someone we don’t know who we don’t agree in principal with?  Charles Jeanes states it perfectly: War has no victors. If the greedy want war, let them fight.

Sign me up for a lifetime of white poppies.
