I hope you will read A Soldier Speaks: Sean Huze by Lakshmi Chaudhry in today’s AlterNet–the last, but certainly not the least, in a series of profiles of Iraq war veterans. Here is a quote:

So one of the things that has changed for the positive is that it helped me realize that true patriotism is questioning our leaders. That’s what our country is founded on. That’s what men like me put our lives on the line to defend. So protesting the war does not equate with protesting those of us in uniform. It’s not unpatriotic to want to get our guys home from the war zone.
