Finds Memorial Day sales beyond distasteful

We are the only nation in the world that pretends to honor our veterans who gave the “ultimate sacrifice” by having mattress/car/ underwear/ swimwear/ and all other manner of “sales’ in the name of that sacrifice.

What blasphemy. I am certain that when my uncle Alton was killed after the D-Day invasion by a German sniper he was not offering his young life so that millionaires and the corporations they worship and serve could make even more in profits. What an insult to all the veterans and the civilians who died that such a travesty of a holiday would be considered acceptable.

Rev. Andrew Gentry, Swannanoa
