Memorial for Whom?

Marched once again with my Boy Scout Troop in the Memorial Day parade. Aside from a very poor turnout of spectators, I was shocked when we carried the American flag past a group of "young men" who booed. It was hard explaining to the Cub Scouts why an American would boo an American flag, and I admit I didn't try. Why should I try to justify that behavior, especially on the day we honor those who gave our lives for us. What the hell is this country coming to?


It is likely that they were booing the Boy Scouts, Mike. Remember they won their lawsuit and are now officially "haters."
