7. while kleeb and beth are both deserving of their own monuments in dc
Edited on Fri May-28-04 07:38 PM by Neo Progressive
i was referring to the people the wwii memorial is supposed to commemorate. Particularly the "freedom wall." I'm sorry, this looks like a really half assed attempt to recreate the Vietnam Memorial. A real memorial would have their names and ranks listed, not some stupid stars. The term freedom wall also reeks of something Bush would say.

in fact, I'm going to elaborate further why the "Freedom Wall" is a joke. They have four thousand stars representing the four hundred thousand lives lost during the war. Simple math says that's one star for every 100 brave soldiers, medics, etc. who lost their trying to free Europe from the tyranny of Naziism. We, rightly, honor those who died in Vietnam by listing their names, why couldn't the same be done for those who died trying to destroy one of the greatest evils in modern history?
