While I applaud and honor the sacrifices made by our Vets - I do think that there will be a tsunami of memoirs coming that will in some manner overwhelm and dilute our collective memory. To the point that like Self-Help books will be all merge into one and perhaps actually hurt the historical accuracy of our telling of events.

One thing that the past wars have is a limited amount of such tomes, and of course no tweeted, facebook'd, youtube'd record of not just the important aspects but more of the mundane. Where I think the mundane will swamp the important...

IMO.
