Thank you troops, but why are we there?

The Fourth of July Dillon concert performed by the 85 members of the National Repertory Orchestra was amazing.To anyone who missed it, I would encourage you to catch them this summer or next Fourth of July if we are so fortunate. Thank you thank you to all those involved, and especially to all the incredibly talented musicians. You made my day.The tribute and account to the injured soldiers who were present was quite moving. And to have them presented in person brought a tear to everyone’s eyes. Thank you, thank you for your service.But, I do have some questions: Is this necessary? What is this all for? Why are we there? Isn’t it time to end this?
