Memorial Day 2017: Remembering Our Troops

From the May 29, 2017, Chicago Tribune political cartoon by Signe Wilkinson, Philadelphia Daily News.

A picture of a cemetery with a mass of gravestones.  All have U.S. flags and each one has a different name on it:

Irish American
English American
Mexican American
German American
African American
Scottish American
Native American
Italian American
Iraqi American
French American
Chinese American
Puerto Rican American
Cuban American
Greek American
Japan American

And, so forth.

Pretty-well sums it up, even if I could do without the country classification and just say "American."

We're All Americans.
