Recently, we took Mr. Baboon’s grandfather to buy a new car. His heart was set on an Infinity until he realized that it was a Japanese company.
He was a pilot in the south Pacific during WW2. His feelings on American and Patriotism are, as can be imagined, rather strong.
This made me think, as we head towards another major conflict:
What do other vets currently think about the ‘enemy’?
(to clarify,I am referring to the enemy that you fought against in the war).
Do you still feel that they are an enemy? Did you then?
Given a chance, would you enlist now?
Would you go visit that country now?
I am not looking into starting a discussion as to war is bad or good, but rather what your feelings are currently.
Thank you for sharing.
And thank you for doing such a difficult job, in case you haven’t heard it today.
