Nobody cares about the fallen vets. Today is the day to get drunk and eat barbecued food.

Well that's not totally true but most people are indifferent because they don't have to worry about being drafted. When I was stationed at Fort Lee, VA I had to detail the soldiers in my unit to participate in the official ceremony and over half of the young solders pissed and moaned that they were missing the holiday.



None of the holidays follow their true meaning so if it were up to me I'd put them all together the first couple weeks of June or at Christmas and allow people to go on paid vacation or be due some great holiday pay twice a year.
