ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the significance of old soldiers in the U.S. history of wars. Old soldiers have always led the U.S. They've shown how to love country, revere military and honor war dead. Fighting soldiers fall quickly out of love with war. Living in cramped quarters, stripped of their individuality, they find their youthful dreams of glorious war alien and strange. Veterans who speak openly of war's evil, though, say honesty can help in future fights. It is the privilege of the old soldier, then, to speak realistically of war, and idealistically of peace.
