From: A Los Angeles Fireman [Email him]
I work for the Los Angeles Fire Department and am assigned near the Los Angeles National Cemetery.
The other day we were asked to participate in the funeral of a local Air Force Staff Sergeant who was killed when a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan a few weeks ago.
While making our arrangements in the office at the cemetery, I noticed a bulletin posted that listed the days of emphasis for the cemetery this year.
Now, one might think that they might focus on the different branches of the military, or the different conflicts in which those buried had served. But of course that's not the case.
There were nine of them, each lasting about a month. The nine in no particular order.
It's disturbing, but not surprising, that even at the site of their burial, those who have served are pushed aside to honor the false gods of the state.

It's more likely that a deceased fighting man is in the cemetary because a person of Asian Pacific Ancestry or American-Indian Ancestry put him there. As for Dr. King, during the Vietnam war, he supported the other side.
