Two Ways to Support the Troops, Even if You Oppose the War

Dick Feagler has an excellent column in Sunday's Plain Dealer in the wake of last week's deaths of twenty members of the Third Battalion, 25th Marines based in Brook Park:

It is a terrible week to trash the war.

And it leaves a lot of us tongue-tied. In the face of such sacrifice, how can we continue to criticize this war. Because, if we say it's wrong, what do we say to those parents?

I don't know the answer. But, as a survivor of the Vietnam generation, I know this. You don't blame the troops for where our country has put them. You cherish the troops because they are by far more noble than the suits who sent them to fight and die for a nation that is far too indifferent and detached.

Mr. Feagler also provides contact information for the USO of Northern Ohio and reminds us that the USO needs monetary donations to assemble care packages and letters to send to service members overseas.

At Objective Justice, Sean Sirrine, another war opponent, is helping to raise funds for the family of Sgt. Christopher Taylor. Click here to find out how to help.

How about find a military family and offer to work around the house for them?
