Never as I made my way across the sands of Omaha Beach, through the "hedge rows" of Normandy, France, to the battle of St. Lo, the frozen and snow covered Ardenne Forest during the Battle of the Bulge then on to Berlin did I envision that those of us in the military would one day be labeled right-wing extremists and a potential threat to our country by own Homeland Security Department.
I am not an extremist or a threat to our country, just a law-abiding, taxpaying American who does not want or expect a handout, but does expect our tax money to be used for common sense.
You would think there would be a unified uproar coming from our politicians over this DHS memo. Go with me to our military cemeteries both here and abroad and I'll show you where the "extremists" are.
They paid the "extreme" price with their lives.
