Here's a simple yet powerful proposal that some lovely Democratic Congresscritters might consider introducing as a bill in Congress.
Require that there be a simple 1-2 hour ceremony on the first working day of each month in one of the Chambers of Congress. On large TV screens the Congresscritters would see photographs of the men and women who've died in Afghanistan and Iraq during these wars - in total silence. Each time they would see all the photos, one after another, all of them, from the beginning of the wars.
They aren't required to attend but nothing else gets scheduled at that time. I do bet the media would film them on their way in and out.
