I Suspect We Will Learn About More Such Cases As Time Goes On

These 19 United States Citizens (This article says, "I suspect we will learn about more such cases as time goes on.") are not going to celebrate Independence Day with their families tomorrow because they served their country during an unpopular war several decades ago. When the war ended they were left behind forgotten by everyone but their families and close friends. Now the country we were fighting at that time is one of our trading partners. Chances are stuff made by our former enemy is being sold in a store near you. I'm thinking we should leave every bit of that stuff on the store shelf until every United States soldier that was left behind in Vietnam is accounted for.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Dusty,

I checked out the info at your site. It will be fine for you to use it, no problem. I'm doing good to get a message posted here.

We must never forget our POW/MIA's.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I believe I heard that there are also some unaccounted for in North Korea. Such situations may have been avoided had we heeded George Washington's words: "It is our true policy to steer clear of entangling alliances with any portion of the foreign world."

I would add to that: ... it leads to nothing but trouble.

Have a very happy Fourth.
