Baffled

Call me baffled, but as I sit here listening to the recording of Taps that is played nightly, I wonder why it is that the messages about the sacrifices our military men and women (and even their families) make daily are typically targeted to the…wait for it….military.

I am reminded of the terribly cloying song that used to play while shopping in my parents’ local grocery store that would solicit shoppers. I was already shopping inside the store while receiving this sales pitch. Now if that’s not preaching to the converted I’m not sure what is.

I just wish that the 99% of the population not affiliated with the military would be targeted by the Madison Avenue advertising moguls about the 1% which is.
