These victims have already been paid their respects. The country that tried to send them to the stone age, that poisoned their landscape and murdered their children has not acknowledged its complicity.
The United States never learned from the Vietnam War. The folks who refused to fight for this lie and emigrated, who built themselves a new life as solid citizens of another country, are not granted the respect they deserve. This simple memorial to their participation in their new homeland became a target for the US right wing hate machine, the same media machine that continues to send us into wars.
The draft dodgers were right. if we had listened, we would not be involved now in the destruction of the Middle East.
People do not leave their homeland to become lifetime emigres for frivolous reasons. The former Americans who moved to Canada and contributed to their adopted homeland deserve credit for what they accomplished.
