All these various vigils, memorials, honor flights, etc., etc., while giving appropriate respect and appreciation for past military service, say little or nothing about no more wars or violence.

Let’s try:

No medals.

No ribbons.

No plaques.

No memorials.

No unit pennants.

No unit citations.

No fly-bys or fly-overs.

Let the dead sleep. Let the living live. No remembrances of war.

Can we speak for peace?
