"Operation Freedom".

That name is ironic.

My cousin was fighting in that, but then he got hurt. Do you have to be old to be a veteren, or does he count too?

Okay, this post was made in order to remeber and honor those who were killed in the line of duty, not to bash politicians, so shut up with that.
