Get ready...If they did that I bet it would happen again...the sad chapter of American history children never learn about in classrooms when the military shot and killed forgotten WWI veterans in our nation's capitol for simply asking for what they were owed for their sacrifices... Those who forget their history...

Huh. I never heard of the Bonus Army until now.

What's interesting is if the .gov will do this to people who have fought for them, what will they do to its citizens who take up resources (OCare, anyone?).

Next week - and the following four years - are going to be very interesting. Undecided

I have read that the attack was commanded by Pershing, and led on scene by George S Patton.

2 of America's greatest war heros led the attack on our own war veterans. Never forget that if you delude yourself into thinking US troops wont fire on US citizens.

Yeah I was almost physically ill, when Rachel Maddow tried to compare the occupiers with the Bonus Army.

Pershing was long gone. Douglas MacArthur was the Army Chief of Staff and ordered Infantry and Cavalry troops in. Patton was in command of the Cav.
