Another Union. Another List.

This list of men and women who were grateful for the opportunity to serve is long. I know that. I had almost decided not to post it because the loudmouths who should be ashamed of their language and behavior seem to be impervious to the irony of their own words, much less mine.

But then I saw the name of Jim Jantz on the list. Jim was one of Dad's buddies from way-back, shot during a routine traffic stop that would turn into one of Wisconsin's largest manhunts.

I will repeat my challenge. Show a little gratitude. Have a little shame.

Who exactly has shown a lack of gratitude.

Seems you are trading on their sacrifice to make a cheap political point.

You are the one with the issue.
