Today, of course, is Veterans Day. An appropriate time to mark the bravery of a small group of men who were among the first Americans to retaliate against the overwhelming might of fascist, imperial Japan. Doug Powers recounts the heroism of the Doolittle Raiders on Michelle Malkin’s site, which includes video footage of their final toast. A good friend of mine has also penned a thoughtful  tribute to American veterans, which is worth checking out. For those readers who are currently serving or have served in the Armed Forces, you have our gratitude and appreciation for your sacrifices to this country.
