You miss the point.
Forget whether his t-shirt or cap is issue correct. Forget even about if he is real military. Is he right? Does our military deserve support in all these pointless wars? Ya know how much it cost BigGov to stamp out a medal? A buck and a half. These stupid sokdiers will risk life and limb to get a silly medal.
Our distinguished Henry Kissinger once said it best, "Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy". (The quote is found in “Final Days,” a book by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Kissinger has never disputed it)
That is what your government thinks of your service.

Is that what you saw...a stoned canadian huh? He either had much to drink, or like many soldiers who saw (or did) horrific things in battle, returned home with PTSD. Those of us who had that were put on serious antidepressants, which can also have that effect. If that is the case, this guys is really struggling with something he had to endure and does not understand why.
Imagine for a second if you will being in a horrific situation. One of your leaders ask your group what you think...and everyone is speaking out and saying what is going on and what they think about it. Then you hear the news that that same leader says the exact opposite of what everyone was saying on the evening news. Would it absolutely enrage you? A lot of vietnam POWs were extremely angry at good ol Hanoi Jane for saying they were being treated humanely. Let 'em win this war....speaking as one who had to come home from a war that didn't go so well....what's he hiding? do some research and maybe you'll find out....

I have been bothered for a long time about these privet contractors.......I have a close relative that's over there now making 200 thousand a yr working for them....Sick hah!.....And he is bored because they do not work them enough and he most likely will quit because of that!
If they can pay these contractors big money why do most of our military get poverty wages???????....This makes me SICK AND DISGUSTED to see this happening,and just shows the usa (little caps )does not deserve bigger is FRICKEN CORRUPT!!!!!

I have seven college degrees and am completing a masters; but you are right the quality of troops has declined, hence girly man crying on you tube. And, I'll stack my IQ against yours any day. All of my employers civilian and military have loved me because I am a professional. I do the job I'm paid to do, like it or not; and I don't cry like a little girl when the going gets tough.
If he were brave, then he'd stand up for his beliefs by deserting and go to Canada. Instead he's crying n the internet about how unfair life is; there hasn't been a draft since Vietnam, so no one forced him to join. What did he expect to do as a soldier?
