    I scratch my head every time. A lot of people don't seem to understand that:
    Armed Forces Day is to honor those currently serving,
    Veteran's Day is to honor those that have served and are still alive, and
    Memorial Day is to honor those that gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving.

    Evidently some parts of NE are very different because we always had military marching in our 4th of July parades. This country is great because of freedom and freedom is sustained through a strong military.

    Many times we went to Fort Devens on the 4th to watch the cannons go off. Nobody had a problem with that to my knowledge but we do live in sensitive times today.

    Rubber tracks on tanks and they could run on the streets.

    Independence Day is about celebrating the principles upon which the founding fathers gave birth to the United States of America by issuing the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Extrapolating that to emphasizing the military is wrong. Yes, sometimes military figures are included in Independence Day celebrations as a patriotic gesture to those who defend those principles, but that is peripheral to the holiday's intent.

    If you're still confused, remedial assistance can be found here: Independence Day (United States) - Wikipedia

    Don't love the state of things but I'll stay. I've given my pound of flesh and earned my right to be critical.
