    Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, described his own way of honoring Operation Iraqi Freedom missing-in-action service members who served under his command from 2003 to 2004.

    'Make It Matter'

    “On my desk, less than 100 yards from where we stand, sits a small wooden box. And inside that box, there’s small laminated cards with a picture of every service member lost in Iraq under my command from 2003 to 2004," Dempsey said. "And on that box are inscribed three simple words, ‘Make It Matter.’

    I Remember POW/MIA/KIA/WIA EVERY day.

    I fly historic American and Confederate flags as well. They ALL deserve respect and honor. They fought for Freedom.

    During my summer trip through New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont, I was struck by the number of POW/MIA flags I saw. Perhaps I was sensitive to such as the media were raging out about the rebel flag around that time. Funny how that nonsense went quiet almost as quickly as it began...

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    If you're ever in middle Georgia drop by Andersonville. In addition to the infamous Civil War prison the national POW museum is there. Worth a see.
