Tell me how our involvement in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Desert Storm, etc... played any part in protecting our freedoms?
You don't need a post of explanation. You need an education.

Thank you for your thoughts. I served over 20 yrs active duty. Retired (not really) in 1996 during the Bush administration. Rank of Major could have easily made LTC. Chose to get out because what I was seeing seemingly only a select few were aware, at my level. Their is no way in hell I could serve under this current illegal administration. Son (whatever) want even show his birth certificate (the one that counts) and has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to hide the rest. Everything that passes through that orifice he calls a mouth is almost guaranteed to be a lie and usually a big one. Remember him saying during an interview "my Islamic faith" and the individual interviewing had to correct him by saying "you mean your Christian faith. Of course he quickly agreed. It would be laughable if he wasn't so dangerous to our now (defunked) way of life.

It's a good time to take a moment and think about the sacrifices many people make willingly for the greater good. Members of the armed forces have my thanks and supreme respect.
At this time of the year, I also include in my thoughts the police officers, firefighters, and anyone who puts themselves in harm's way for the safety and protection of others.
Thank you all.
Somebody up there said they weren't comfortable accepting a free meal. Please think of it this way - it makes the ownership and the people who work there feel like they're giving back a little bit and gives them an opportunity to show some gratitude. Of course, it's nothing but a token but it is a win/win in my opinion.
There have been a few times I've asked a waitress to bring me the check of a soldier in uniform without telling him, before. I always get a lot more out of it than they do.
