I think that would be a good idea. I also like the idea of being able to have a verified way of allowing people to show they are a Dr, or scientist or whatever. I don't say this just because I'm a proud Marine Vet (Semper fi) but i think it could be beneficial to know what someone's qualifications are when they post. Some people say what I think is stupid s&$t on here but if they had some sort of qualification for what they are saying, then it would certainly (at least in my case) lend extra credibility to what they are saying.
BTW, thanks for your service brother. Don't listen to (what I'm sure will be) the many negative posts regarding your service. They don't realize that the fact that they are even able to post their hate on sites like this is because of the sacrifice of the men and women in service.

Your opinion on something doesn't make it a fact. Pretty much the end of the discussion on that front.
My opinion is different.
Also, you initially said "the US military" and now you're changing it to "what war or conflict" in an effort to be right. The military has done far more than just fight wars and conflicts in the last 50 years.
