There is a famous quote that goes something like this: "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it" If the Allies had stood up to Hitler in the mid to late 30s, there is a good chance the European portion of WWII might not have happened. Also when we look at what has come to light in the former Yugoslavia in regards to ethnic cleansing, we must never forget the concentration camps. As Ike said he visited the camps so that in later years, when the apologists tried to say it really never happened, he could say yes it did and I saw it. Another statement that really sums it up is when I was in the Army during Desert Storm and Shield, there were all of these protestors. My friends were quite upset, but I told them that what my father told me he said while in Nam, we were fighting to give them the freedom to express themselves, even if it was to criticize us. That is the beauty of the American system and part of the reason we must never forget the vets. There is a wonderful T-shirt I saw with a couple of Nam soldiers on it, the caption read "All gave some, some gave all" This is one of the reasons we must never forget. Remember for evil to succeed, all good men need do is nothing.
