Once again I felt sad watching. My mother like every year cried. The story of the mother who lost her son and the playing of the military theme songs.

I felt sad because we are so close to losing yet another generation. The Vietnam Vets and the hippies. I figure average age is about 68. The youngest wouldbe 59 if they went in to Vietnam at 18 in 1975. Oddly no vet from this era has president or vicepresident. Is Colin Powell the closest to line of presidency when he was Secretary of State? Yet those who have not served become president from.this era. Total reverse of the WW2 era.

The music was ok. They had better performers before. The song about proud to be in Arlington was a cringeworthy song.
