Honour and memorialize those valiant warriors at the tip-of-the-spear? Absolutely!

Call to account the system that too often fails them? Absolutely!

Change is most effective when from the bottom up. Do your part to redeem and support the Warrior Path by engaging, voting, and taking thoughtful, persistent action in building a system that is more fair, more honourable, and aims for the Greater Good for the Greatest Number.


Steps for systemic change are laid out in "The Watchman's Rattle" by Rebecca D. Costa. See Stanley Kubrick's wrenching film "Paths of Glory" about World War I and watch the TV series "Reilly, Ace of Spies" starring Sam Neil. Also check out "Charlie Wilson's War" for insights into the Afghanistan situation. For more on bottom-up change see
