All you have to do is fly "OLD GLORY" especially today. That in itself is paying tribute to all our fallen service men & women.

As a Veteran I cant tell you how much I resent the clever sayings like the two on todays Lulac and those who have profited by producing them and worst of all singing them. It seems most of todays Great Patriots are entertainers and athletes who never served a minute. Today is about those who died in the service of their country not flag wavers and other bullshitters! 365 Days in a combat zone qualifies me to make the above statements. A lifetime of witnessing lip service to patriotism causes me to vent. Men and women die everyday and unless it hits your home or your neighborhood nobody gives a shit!

Mr. Veteran here is a little info you missed: John Wayne

Wayne was exempted from service due to his age (34 at the time of Pearl Harbor) and family status, classified as 3-A (family deferment). Wayne's secretary recalled making inquiries of military officials on behalf of his interest in enlisting, "but he never really followed up on them."[18] He repeatedly wrote to John Ford, asking to be placed in Ford's military unit, but continually postponed it until "after he finished one more film."[19] Republic Studios was emphatically resistant to losing Wayne, especially after the loss of Gene Autry to the army.[20] Correspondence between Wayne and Herbert J. Yates (the head of Republic) indicates that Yates threatened Wayne with a lawsuit if he walked away from his contract, though the likelihood of a studio suing its biggest star for going to war was minute.[21] The threat was real, but whether Wayne took it seriously or not, he did not test it. Selective Service Records indicate he did not attempt to prevent his reclassification as 1-A (draft eligible), but apparently Republic Pictures intervened directly, requesting his further deferment.[22] In May, 1944, Wayne was reclassified as 1-A (draft eligible), but the studio obtained another 2-A deferment (for "support of national health, safety, or interest").[23] He remained 2-A until the war's end. John Wayne did not "dodge" the draft, but he never took direct positive action toward enlistment.

10:42 is right. The problem is inaccurate sayings like ALL GAVE SOME! Bullshit is correct! ALL THE WAY BACK TO KOREA all have not had to give some and most gave none. I'm surprised this found its way onto Lulac!

Jesus Yonki, you can't win with any body doing this blog. Someone is always going to piss and moan about anything you do.

10:42.... looks like someone pissed in your cheerios. As a veteran I am very appreciative that Yonk took the time to find these fine examples of patriotism and shared them on his blog. I question not just your attitude but the fact that you say you are a veteran. Never in my 75 years of life have I ever heard a true patriot and veteran use your words. Shame on you and God Bless America and God Bless our Veterans and God bless and watch over our troops.

What fine examples of Patriotism are you talking about?
You obviously haven't heard much honesty in your 75 years!
And Yes I am a proud veteran, but also an Agnostic. You can be both.
I'll add one more comment that will probably piss you off, Nobody ever died for a flag! The Soldiers I knew died for each other and I would have done the same! Lastly I feel no shame at all and have no reason to! The truth hurts sometimes.

Truth can hurt but stupid hurts even more. I guess you think the Revolutionary War was a fight enjoyed by friends fighting for each other. I suggest you read a book or two and you will find that many died for the flag of a yet to be established free country. I don't care if your Agnostic, Hebrew, Catholic, Islam, Protestant or Buddhist....... that's what America is all about. One good thing about Agnostic jerks, we won't have to put up with you in our next life because you don't believe in the next life. By the way, are you a true Atheist or just a lost soul Agnostic? David, I will ask shy you allow such BS on your site. I understand you encourage people to voice their opinions but I have little, well actually, I have NO use for people who claim to be veterans but are not patriotic.

Yonk, next time just put up a flag.

The two are not mutually exclusive. There are many veterans who were not and/or are not patriotic! Yes I read. I read once a great quote from the McCarthy witch hunts (I bet you remember him as a patriot) "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel".
A flag is a piece of cloth. And once again I don't claim to be a vet I am one, a decorated one as a matter of fact who did all that was asked of him and then some. Mr Patriot this country gives me the right to believe what I wish and worship or not as I please, but you overlook that and condemn me for my freedom because I don't agree with you! Get real. I suppose the patriot act is all good too! You would have Mr Yonki edit views he doesn't agree with or in your extreme case those you don't like! Good call. You don't get it at all. Difference is I support your right to state your "opinion". Nuff said.

Like you’ve often said, Ya never know whats gonna set em off.
Those who declare their Patriotism are usually, in my experience dangerous and anxious
to support their Patriotic urges with the lives of the sons and now daughters of others!
I fly the flag of Scotland except on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. I am an American of Scottish heritage.
Going to Vietnam had nothing to do with Patriotism. It was my duty as an American or so I believed at the time.
I turned against that War and all wars based on my personal experience. My Country has and continues to make horrible mistakes. Admitting that fact doesn’t lessen my regard for the USA. I always hope we can do better.
