Agree with others who said the initial tweet was nothing more than a simple shrug and that we've gotten too easily offended as a society. The moral of the story is you're not going to make friends with everybody for what you say. Some are just wound too tight to allow others to make light of a meaningful day without voicing their opinions. I probably wouldn't have thought twice about it.

I also have a feeling this might not have gotten such a reaction if it weren't for the increased attention the military has gotten post-9/11. Don't get me wrong. I love what these men and women have done for our country and our freedom, but eventually, it's going to get to a point where some people eat up enough of it that even the slightest jab at anything related is as bad as burning a bunch of crucifixes in a church parking lot. Sometimes, the country needs to slow down a bit when building something up.
