    Loosewire, this weekend is Memorial Day, not Veterans Day. Veterans Day, was Armistice Day, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, marking the end of WWI. Memorial Day honors the Civil War dead, and was first announced in a General Order from the Grand Army of the Republic.

    I thought Veterans day celebrated all veterans, and memorial day celebrated veterans that have died?

    Memorial day is the rememberance of all those who died, but the origins was after the Civil War, honoring those who fought in that war. It wasn't till after WWII that people started calling it Memorial Day. Memorial day was decorations day until it was declared the official name by Federal law in 1967

    Armistice day was changed to veterans day because WWI wasn't the war to end all wars as previously advertised. By congressional decree, after WWII, it includes all wars, past and future. And yes, it honors all veterans.

    @JoeJester, Its about time they start making drone trucks and other machines

    to protect the troops from booby traps,before they spend money on anything else.

    How can they start down a cleared road,return to base camp,just to be booby

    trapped the next morning with a guy on the other end of a wire.It don't make sense,

    its like a broken record,people being blown up everyday the same ways.

    Loosewire,

    it's a never ending scenario. Something is done to prevent an action, the other side changes their methodology.

    The drone vehicles will be recognized after a period of time and the bad guys will wait for one with people. Then snipers will be deployed to keep the bad guys further out.

    Politico's try to manage an ever fluid situation like a war. I don't think we can find one successful management of that in human history.

    Even General George Washington had problems with the politicos.

    Romans had a pretty good system.

    I guess it helped that their armies and senates were intertwined.

    @ Joe, I watch that program that has two guys,sitting giving orders and

    receving information back.The move about a foot an hour clearing the road.

    Then its time to return to base camp,its the same thing over and over.

    They are in a very heavy armormed tank.
