Being a retired captain after having served in the military

for 7 years, my Veterans Day Wishes are - (why? 為什麼, 不惜犧牲澀像, 如此拋投碌面地, 自言語自地, "張揚" 當年少不更事, 行不得已 的 血氣之勇 ?? ! )-

  Behave bravery without being induced to the war;
Protect the global village without resorting to weaponry;
Save humanity without shedding blood;
Dedicate loyalty without being forced to the battlefields;
Support the troops without depriving the life chances for better education and health care of people in uniform;
Join military without "being the sons, daughters, relatives of  the Rich, and the Powerful and the Aristocracy"!!!

Crystal Huang Another possible commonality could be:
Seemingly they all came from some sort of humble family background?? Not like Prince Edward, Prince Harry, and those Aristocrats in the War and Peace...etc. joined military as part of "Noble/Royal" deeds (if not a token, or Symbolism)?? What about sharing some preciously brave opportunities to recruit soldiers and cadets from both Houses on Capitol Hills, CEO households, and the rest of Aristocrats as part of demonstrating "Patriotism" ! ?? and let their mothers decide whose child/folks should go for war?? !

I love ducklings, in particular, sharing the same fun that I like so much !
A serious duckling lover criticized that the whole play ground should have been much bigger or spacious, NOT this toy-size. A good point.

This poster is - mmm...a little bit, serious.
Oh well, why not?
History is mystery + a short term memory !

Wait a minute, let me check...

1. Did they have to pass the naturalization test?
2. Provided evidence of the secure financial sources?
3. Learned to speak English without accent?
4. Paid taxes religiously?
5. Patiently moved up from the 3rd  or 4th grade citizen, into the 2nd, and then...???
