Is a salute to veterans the right place to perform a song recognized as an anti-war song?  That's a question a lot of people were asking after Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and Zac Brown played John Fogerty's Fortunate Son during the Concert for Valor on the Mall in the nation's capitol on Veteran's Day.  A portion of the 12,000 members of the military attending the event as well as non-military attendees and viewers took exception to it while others thought it struck the right chord.
