Those who serve
: Tim Oren visits the new World War II memorial in Washington. He says:
Our current struggle is the first in our history as a nation in which the roll call of the dead contains a majority of civilians. This is our enemy’s goal, for they are murderers, not soldiers.
And he pictures the words of Gen. George Marshall in stone:
We are determined that before the sun sets on this terrible struggle our flag will be recognized throughout the world as a symbol of freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other.
