In the May 2 Post Dispatch, there was an article about a flap in Lake St. Louis over publicly acknowledging that the U.S. makes mistakes in wartime. A group of veterans prepared small plaques for a public park denoting famous moments in US military history. They had the temerity to list a few “mistakes” made in past and present wars. Because of complaints, supposedly from other veterans, the “mistake” plaques have been removed. A Lake St. Louis official said that information like that had no place in a war memorial and that the city wanted only information that citizens can be proud of. He said the discussion about “mistakes” belonged in a “different forum.” LIKE DOWN THE MEMORY HOLE!
