Thanks Lone!

Noted and isn't it about time that the Native Americans get the honour they needed for the service to THEIR country? I believe it is! I also think it should have been done a long time ago and not seperate from the others but together with everyone else. Reading what they did they should deserve the highest honour they could get by giving the Americans everything they wanted to know and use their own languages as well. Who would have thought of that. Not the Japanese that's for sure.

Good for your Tribes and they deserve this!!! Thank you Lone, it was interesting reading that's for sure and at last they gave in to what they should have done a long long time ago.

In canada, our war veterans came home to find out they no longer had status & couldnt live in their homes anymore. It was just a couple of years ago they were allowed to walk in remeberance day parades. Nice way to treat our warriors.

these Indian monument trusts should form international veterans & other voctims linkups & trusts , for psycho-abuse wars as well , because it is impossible to find help for abuse nowadays , because govts & UN are corrupt ; so it would help if other people in other countries , individuals suffering bad abuse , domestic violence - this needs help ; the veterans monuments is a really nice concept because the veterans themselves when retired are still special aides & have special abilities which the average city or country is unable to provide .
