Google Doodle for Veterans Day 2013


Above is a Google Doodle up now for Veterans Day 2013. Google has done a Veterans Day doodle before. However, they have caught criticism for their selection or omission of other days to honor with a Google Doodle in some circles.

  1. Interesting that when you click on the doodle, there is no description by Google of the meaning or purpose of the doodle like there is on all other doodles.

    This may be the proverbial damned if you do, damned if you don’t, but If you can spare the time to put a doodle up on say the guy that discovered x-rays (a recent one), with an extensive description (good teaching moment for us all) could you not find someone to write a useful/ meaningful description about the meaning/history of veterans day?

    My guess is that they couldn’t find a politically correct way to do it, so they did nothing. Hey Google, how about next year having a doodle showing the Vets dumping the “Barrycades” from the WW2 memorial on the steps of the White House?

    • You hit the nail right on the google head. I’m glad there are a few smart ones out there not completely brainwshed by the PC world. Two thumbs up, sir.
