A good post and most appropriate to introduce the youngsters to.
A couple of points re Nina Berman and her book;
This is not a new issue nor is it something that's been glossed over. Every month I get 4 magazines with the same types of pictures -well before her book was written.
The USA veterans organizations once begged for volunteers to visit veterans and military hospitals. Today, there is much less interest from younger people. Now, in December, with winter solstice approaching (once called Christmas, in the States),...the programs will still be short of volunteers.
I've always considered a major disease to be =boredom=. Besides their infirmity, those people in our warehouses ...er...medical facilities must endure pure boredom as a routine.If I ever get around to getting some French Armistice Le Bleuet De France, I'd get them from the Legion's retirement home (somewhere near the Italian Alps?). They have a gift store. The philosophy is to take care of those who left the battlefield.
Again, it's a good and timely post to introduce this subject.
