Texas Liberal

All People Matter

Memorial Day

Here is the dog tag of Korean War combat veteran and medic Tony Aquino. Tony never said anything macho or boastful about his service. He would tell you if you asked.

He was a liberal who opposed the Vietnam War and both Iraq wars. He resented people like B. Clinton, Quayle, G.W. Bush & Cheney who used connections to get out of serving, and then sent other people to war.

Just like you and I, and just like our nation taken as a whole, Tony was both flawed and decent.

Tony was alive last Memorial Day. Now he is dead.
