Not sure if I'm allowed to do this. Anyway thought it might be interesting to find out how many ATS Members have had Military experience or currently in the military. From any country of course! I'll start and see how this goes.

Tactically, no. Strategically, no. Politically, yes.

Not that I actually think the distinction will matter to somebody as clearly ignorant as....that.


@ OP - not sure if this'll fly or not. Last thread I saw somebody asking for personal info got taken down, but that was asking names. I've seen other "vet oriented" threads left alone.

What they got was a BS War with bad leadership at the top, but our boys were called into service and they did what they were called on to do against a tenacious enemy in their own land. I salute every man that did so and so should everyone else. Take it out on MacNamara, Johnson, Nixon and Westmoreland, oh damn, they are all dead already, oh well, give the men the credit for what they did - Their Duty! Thanks for your service Horse Soldier and all of you that gave of yourselves for your nation!

Wars should not be initiated unless absolutely necessary. The only war I'm aware of, in my life time, that was necessary was World War ll. Subsequent wars that have followed were absolutely wrong in my opinion.

During the Vietnam War the American public were not able to separate the Government, the Military, and the service person. They took it out unfairly on the service personnel. Thankfully today the American public has learned not to take their anger and frustrations out on the men and women who serve or have served with honor.

With due respect to you I wish to suggest you separate service personnel from their corrupt Governments. It's a hardship to serve in the military services.

No military service here. I have family that served. I'm just here to offer heart felt thanks.

The following songs are often sung at powwows during the veteran's dance. These are just a few. Each nation has it's own songs and to list them would take forever. That's where veterans (combat and non combat) from all races and cultures come out into the dance arena so that we can honor them. The veterans will typically dance twice around the circle before we come out and shake their hands and thank them for their service. We take honoring our vets seriously.

This is one of my favorites.


Here is another Veteran's Song that I like.


Here are the Seneca people with their veteran's dance.

A military of the people, by dictatorship, and (hopefully) in the nation's best interests.

It took me a long time to 'get it' ... but the citizens need to vent. Sometimes we're just the most convenient outlet. It seems pretty unfair when you're the target of that frustration, but at least they're not shooting at us.

This may be a bit off-topic and I hope it doesn't lead to distraction, but ... Think about the guys who hold the real s# end of the stick. Our cops deal with low intensity conflict every single day of their careers. -potential rant clipped-

There is a point that I feel compelled to bring up here on this particular Memorial Day, and that is that there is no honor in serving in the US or in any military that is achieved simply by serving, but is in fact accomplished by HOW we serve. Our great nation has a long, proud history of having the individuals that have served and that serve it still, do their duty with diligence, morality and indeed, honor. In these days, when our leadership wavers and falters as it has done, I pray that these men and women that have taken the sacred oath that we here all have sworn, uphold that long held honor to America no matter what the circumstance or how the future situations unfold. You who now serve, you are us, you are from us, and together we must stand or fall with honor. God bless you all....
