I will tell you this much.
I never wanted to join the military.
I am glad, others have and yes, we as a nation depend on the military.
Not just in wars, but to prevent wars and care for the nation as a whole.
I think when national guard or even regular military assists after disasters is wonder and right.
They fight in wars for the US that we want to fight, yet most of us choose not to do the actual fighting.
Last point, A member of my Mustang club came back after 2 years of service in Afghanistan.
I cannot imagine what he has gone through, but I know I sure bought him a beer when he got back.
Don't get me wrong, some do wrong and that is just wrong, wrong is wrong no matter what you wear, but I believe these are the very few compared to
the size of the military.
I commend those who wear the uniform... especially since I choose not to wear one.
To all the armed forces men and women active and retired from the military,
Good life one and all you all.
And for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, god bless you, each and everyone.
(to their families, you have sacrificed a member of your family, the highest form of sacrifice, god bless you all)
BTW, we are entitled to our own opinion about everything and are free to speak/write it.
This includes the OP.
All I ask is this, please remember it is because of these brave men and women, we can all speak out mind freely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
