I have a two part plan.

Firstly, I would like to call on our culture to treat those that serve their nations with respect. Too often, wars become unpopular and the warriors are inconvenient reminders. I would like to live in a world where "homeless vet" isn't a useful phrase.

Once we reach a point where veterans are honored on a daily basis, we can begin working on phase 2 of my plan, which is to make Memorial Day a separate holiday from Veterans Day. Right now, they are nearly synonymous - and if you're thinking of people in the armed services, that's not bad.

And, nuts, I forgot to record "It's Armed Forces Day, Charlie Brown".
