The Minnesota Twins are are holding Armed Services Appreciation Night in the Metrodome Monday night. The Twins are offering half-price admission to current and retired military personnel and their families. They also plan to hand out 5,000 G.I. Joe action figures to children. In addition, Gov. Tim Pawlenty will be on hand to welcome the return of C Company, 142nd Engineer Battalion of the Minnesota National Guard.
This tribute isn’t sitting well with several groups, including “Friends for a Non-Violent World.” As Tom Knott of the Washington Times reports, they see the G.I. dolls as glorifying war and thus “not a credible way to honor those who’ve suffered [its] inhumanity.” These groups would prefer that our soldiers be given the ultimate honor that the left can bestow — victimhood.
