    Big whoop. You served. So did I. So did a million other guys who are over it and getting on with their lives.

    I'm still not gonna kiss anyones butt because they need validation. The modern army are all volunteers and they have no one to blame but themselves if it wasn't the great adventure they had anticipated.

    For every one guy who came home messed up from the Wars to End All Wars there were Thousands who got along as best they could and didn't whine and cry and say poor me I suffered so much I need validation for my effort.

    I use the terms "they" and "them" to disassociate myself from a bunch of whiny ass crybabies who think I should: "Appreciate" their sacrifice because they're special and give them a participation trophy as they wave their "stress cards" in the air.

    Believe me: I feel for the guys who really suffered. But when it's over ya gotta get over it and continue to contribute to society just like millions have done since the dawn of time.


    all i read from you is blah-blah-blah, you are just trolling this board!

    I served 20years. was in during 3 different wars/conflicts. my thought is...if u didn't serve, i don't want to hear ur opinion about anything involving the military. Yes u have freedom of speech (that I served to protect) and when u start to tell me whats wrong with the military; I have the freedom to not listen to an idiot. I was also a sheriff's deputy. We cannot shoot innocent people and get away with it. (another idiot) everyone is held to standards. does all follow those stanards? of course not. do not judge all by some undisciplined and unethical(sp?) people. Its just like I don't judge everyone on this website's forums by the uninformed, idiotic, and unsympathetic/unempathetic responses some of the members post. I am willing to have an inteligent conversation, any day, any time, any where, with anyone. It will be a battle of the minds. don't come unarmed.

    i"m sure I'll get some disparaging remarks but I believe in my own viewpoint that has gotten me through 51 yerars...I DON'T CARE! if you can't come to me with solutions don't b***h about the problems. have a nice day

    Sorry to break it up but I kinda of think this might be relevant;

    Thank Your Military | Thank A Soldier | Causes

    My comments:
    It's what America stands for. Strength with Honor and dedication to the American Way of Life. Sacrificing ones time and energy and unfortunately their life at times for the Freedom of all. God Bless all who has served and all those currently in harms way.

    I will have to disagree with you. I didn't serve but that does not mean I know nothing of the military. You see, you just cutoff all comments from the military dependents. You also cutoff comments from civilians who work(ed) for/with the military. Those in the military aren't the only ones affected by someone in the service.

    Amen! (Grandfather on father's side - WWII and Korea, Grandfather on mother's side - WWII in service of Der Fuhrer, Father - Viet Nam). In this country, I don't see where any of the Constitution or its amendments have military service as a prerequisite. As an armed citizen and member of the unorganized militia of this country, I have as much right as anyone to comment on anything that my tax dollars are funding. And the Military sucks a heck of a lot of money out of my paycheck each year.
