While I am excited that about this event and have no reservations against it, it is unfortunate that Gambit has no reporting, nor put in the "spotlight event" the Louisiana Bicentennial Veterans Day Parade. Over 1.3 million soldiers are returning from two wars that are finally ending, but Gambit decides the freedom of speech of so called "Christians" is more appropriate to fill this week's issue with. I guess veterans aren't trendy enough for the likes of Gambit. Unfortunately, soldiers returning home are used to this kind of treatment and have grown accustomed to facing the bitter irony that the sacrifice of their time and health in the military is for the very same freedom of press that denies them any recognition.
For those interested in the event on Saturday, Nov 10 you can check out details here http://www.nola.com/festivals/index.ssf/20…
Gambit has obviously gone so hipster cool that they have denied any recognition of the military and Louisiana, especially New Orleans' military history. For those of you that do have some appreciation, I only ask that this weekend you give a veteran a handshake, a little wave, even a proud nod will do. It means a lot to those of us that have served in wars both recent and past to know that our service is appreciated.
Happy Birthday Marines on November 10 and a salute to Veterans on November 11!
