They sure as hell weren’t fighting to insure Junior High Civic Comprehension

We watch the entire series every Memorial Day Weekend. From our perspective it would be hard for anyone to fail to appreciate sacrifice on the behalf of the highest good for all concerned in general and a country based on the Declaration of Independence on the other.
