In Praise of Cheerful Men

In Praise of Cheerful Men

Such cheerful men, who helped to lop 988 years off the Thousand Year Reich, are serene reproaches to a nation now simmering with grievance groups that nurse their cherished resentments. The culture of complaint gets no nourishment from men like these who served their country so well while it was treating their families so ignobly. Yet it is a high tribute to this country that it is so loved by men such as these.


A look at the Japanese-American men who served in the US military during WWII with distinction even as their families sat in internment camps back home. And when they came home, they continued to serve their nation with honor and without complaint.
