Join Us On Veterans/Remembrance Day Sunday November 11th Here In Ubon

Recommended Posts

"The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization"

And as such they completely ignore those of us who served our country faithfully during the limited periods of time that the US was not at war.  Ask the US government the status of US vets who served between the Vietnam War and the First Gulf War.  "Thank you for your service! Now go away."  Other than that?  We're not even considered to be 'real' veterans.  More like Cold War vets who aren't 'really' vets.  I'll bet you Russia treats their Cold War vets with more respect.

I wish you a very successful and poignant Remembrance Day in Ubon. This coming Sunday (11th November) I shall be attending the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Foreign Cemetery in Chiang Mai. The UK and US Consuls usually attend along with US Veterans who hold their own ceremony afterwards.

That may well change soon dependent upon the US congress allowing a change to the charter.

The executive committee of the AL recently approved 2 resolutions to request congress to change it to where anybody that has served in the US military is eligible for membership.

I'll be attending Armistice Day service at Anzac Bar in Pattaya, big Chris does a great little service there every year, along with the Anzac Day service in April every year.
