For the record, at the time of the incident I was in Army Basic Training at Ft. Campbell with a lot of National Guard trainees who underwent the same training as we regular army soldiers- react to adversity or die.
But, as you may have noticed about my fellow baby-boomers, it’s not enough to be content with your personal beliefs- they must be adjudicated, publicized and legislated for all to follow.
I have decided that I am interested in the National Guardsmen who were on duty that day. What were the names of the men who stood trial? I wanna do a sympathetic portrait of American heroes for the Republic of Utica.
On the candlelight vigil you should hold a Pro-American counter-demonstration. That’s how legends like “McCarthyism” grow, they are unchallenged.
I emailed an invoice to Alan Canfora this morning for seven cents from the American People for the bullet we had to shoot at him while he was rioting. I told him he was getting off easy and to make payment and his apology for rioting promptly.
