11/11/19 Danny Sjursen on Reclaiming Veterans Day

Load WordPress Sites in as fast as 37ms!

Danny Sjursen advocates for a reclaiming of Veterans Day and a return to the principles of the holiday originally known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day celebrated the end to one of the bloodiest wars in world history, and Sjursen reminds us how eminently worthy of celebration that occasion is. But the modern Veterans Day is not only meaningless and soulless, he says, it also implies that there will always be veterans to celebrate. This attitude helps enable acceptance of America’s forever wars in the Middle East, and makes it more difficult to spread the antiwar cause he has dedicated himself to.
