Dear Kiss & Zutell
Prompted by the September 11 attacks, my son enlisted in the Marines. He was killed in Iraq. I know several other parents who also lost children in the wars. Honestly, I'm not sure why my son died, other than it was completely unnecessary. How many hundreds of thousands of our young men died fighting both Japan and Viet Nam? Now those nations - and their people - once reviled as fiends by "patriots," are among our best friends and biggest trading partners.
