Veterans Day add-ons

Cartoons with Veterans relevance that we recently ran across, or that CIDU Bill had saved to the site’s media library with a note for possible Veterans Day add-on use.

This one Bill marked “Nov 11 Veterans Day addon”. It was posted in https://comicsidontunderstand.com/2020/11/11/one-more-for-veterans-day/


This one Bill marked “UDIC Frazz Veterans Day” . It was posted as https://comicsidontunderstand.com/2018/11/09/udic/


These two we noticed on sequential days in Maria’s Day. Since that strip is on a reruns cycle at GoComics, the actual dates of the recent appearance were 31 August and 01 September, but apparently the original publication was on 10 and 11 November of some year.

And one Veterans Day-After

Camp Swampy may not ever have been a fighting base, but as this shows, they were not entirely outside a world where military conflict was a reality. And we can count all who served as veterans, whether or not they were in active combat or even in a war zone.

This strip seems to be dated 1964, and early enough in that year that “Viet Nam” did not yet mean all of what it would soon take on. Still, isn’t it a bit shocking that this might strike some of its audience as simply funny?
