Maybe not the best analogy, but many people make fun of their forgetfulness by blaming on their ahem "Alzheimer's" ....my Mom died 7 years ago of this and to see her go from a active vibrant healthy woman down to a skinny, bedridden woman who didn't recognize her own family is beyond sad....yet I never resented anyone's remarks as they didn't know. I guess you would have to be in someone's shoes who lost a loved one in a war. I think we can all agree there was no intent on disrespect.
