I like alot of other people I joined the Army right after september 11th because I wanted to be apart of defending the USA, I wanted to be trusted and
tasked to carry out the execution of whoever was behind the events.
As time went on I began to wake up and see that what I was fighting for seemed to make less sense day by day and finally in 2007 I ad my ETS date and
left the military but before that I considered claiming to be a conscientious objector to the war but could not bring myself to do that because of the
people I served with.
I was 27 when I joined the military so I had a heads up and little could be done to brain wash me at that time...
It is this that I think saved
me from the possibility of being just another sheep.
Unfortunatly for all those younger kids that join Im sorry to say many will forever be lost and few will ever see the light to what I am wittness to
in this country. I am aware that the US government basically murders not just people of foriegn nations but its own people and soldiers alike.
I dont support the war, I dont support the troops in war...I support the troops in waking up and seeing what they are being used for.
Many are becoming aware of that thank God and finding it more and more difficult to accept their role.
But while in combat their is little you can do to effect change if anything.
Honestly thinking about crap like that, government using you, government killing innocent people, government evil plans what not, is really bogus.
You just dont have time to be thinking about such things and you dont want to either. A soldier wants as little stress as possible, atleast I know I
I just hope this war will be over soon and these guys can get back here, Im dreaming I know.
But I am willing to protect and serve the REAL united State of America
against all enemies..Im a soldier for life even though Im out of the military now but I wont stand for a domestic enemy anymore than I would stand for
a foreign invasion.
Time will tell what will come from all of this and if it is somthing horrible then to me and many other EX military it will be like flipping a
Im on the side of the people, not the government.
I just wanted to say this so people didnt think all soldiers are blind and emotionless followers of administration, I actually do think for myself.
