No, moldmaker, its not your fault. Its the fault of those like seekerof, who chose to pervert this thread. Its a very common tactic of him, best that you try not let it get to you.
I myself want to hear what the Iraq War veterans have to say. They're citizens too, and its important for us to know what they are thinking.
My fault? Okie Dokie there. The next time people want to insinuate pure crap about those who have served and are serving, I will be sure to avoid my "common tactic": standing up and presenting otherwise.

I couldnt have said it better myself. I served for 7 years in the US Marine Corps, nobody FORCED me to join, nobody FORCED me to reenlist. Anybody who thinks those in the military are nothing more than just robots are sadly mistaken. One of the things taught in bootcamp is how to work as a team, how to think on your feet, how to analyze a situation and find a solution, etc...
I PROUDLY served, and if not for a service connected disability I would be back in uniform today. How many posters on here are willing to sacrifice for something greater than themselves?
