Washington Post
Veterans Day (without the apostrophe). It often seems that it is a day only remembered or appreciated by those, and their families, that have served in the military. More pictures. See this from the New York Times - Lives During Wartime, Vol. 3.

It seems today that is more truer than ever. For example see this Washington Post article - U.S. soldiers at war: The forgotten 1 percent. Men and women putting their lives at risk are ignored except when something unusual occurs.

Worse yet is that the unusual is this: Air Force Admits Body Parts Dumped in Landfill.
