Co-hosts of ABC’s The View argued over the proper way to honor veterans on Veterans Day. Joy Behar said that major newspapers failed to remember the costs of war on their front pages.

Hasselbeck countered that this wasn’t a day to “gripe” about the costs of war. “This is not the day for that. We have 23 million Americans fighting right now who have served our country. They have spent their lives dedicated to our country. Today is a day to honor their quiet courage.”

Behar disagreed. “I’m not complaining about the boys and girls in the war. I am saluting them by talking about what the trials and tribulations have been because of this war,” said Behar.
