ANALYSIS/OPINION:

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

Such an event gives our people the opportunity to thank their servicemen and -women for their sacrifices. There should also be flyovers of cities that don’t have parades, so people will understand that their military is watching over and protecting them.

This is a far cry from the treatment we military members got when returning from Vietnam in the 1970s; we were spit upon while in uniform. Even with all of the sins of the Obama regime, nothing compares to the shameful treatment of veterans by the Democratic Party during the Vietnam War. That behavior will be a black stain on American history that will never be forgiven.
