Soldier Tales

P1030764Here is a thoughtful post from Just A Rez Chick. The subject is Wounded Knee and the medals given to U.S. soldiers who participated in the assault. There is considerable disagreement about what actually happened that day. What is clear is that Native people were massacred. As I read her post, I thought of my dad whose military service, as a relative of those who died at Wounded Knee, was in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. He was proud of his military service and our Native heritage. He also wrote “Caucasian” on his forms. One has to wonder how that was for him…..
