From the Boston Herald: The story of Lance Cpl. Evan Reichenthal, an Afghanistan veteran: “It puts life into perspective when you almost die—when you really almost die, not just your cell phone is out of service or something. When I walked again, it was the best feeling ever."

Petula Dvorak: "Our veterans, living and dead, deserve better from us."

Salena Zito: "Remembrance still matters."

We can never do enough for those who serve our country. They ask only for respect for what they do and their willingness to do it for the rest of us.

And they ask -- as all American soldiers have, since 1775 -- that their efforts not be forgotten.

UPDATE: National Review Online: "Harvard Veterans Mark Holiday."
