Baby Boomers and War

After spending 25 years in the politically incorrect arena of radio and television news, the last thing I want to do now is try to become a politically correct baby boomer.

I am opposed to the war but I wholeheartedly support our troops who are giving up their lives for President Bush's definition of "freedom."

A number of my fellow baby boomers have young sons and daughters who won't be home for Christmas this year because they are supporting an agenda. The least we can do is show our support for them by letting them know they haven't been forgotten. And what does it matter if you don't know anybody personally over in Iraq? Chances are you know someone who has someone connected to the war.

Xerox is giving all of us the opportunity to send a thank you card to our young men and women overseas. All you have to do is pick out the card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier who is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. Let's make sure there's no one without a thank you!

Remember Vietnam?
