Semper Fi (Always faithful)... This means more to me than any other saying i have heard. Those who bash the military are close minded.
Like you said there are bad apples everywhere, even in the military. With that being said there are men and women who deserve our respect and get it.
1st why did you join and are you still active?
2nd have you or would ignore a direct order if you felt that it would be morally wrong to complete that order? Which is your right to do from a moral perspective.
Example I assume that if you were told take to american streets to arrest or round up citizens for no reason other than they told you to, I think you would at least have to second guess your self? I know that is a touchy example, so if you cant or won't answer that I would understand.
I know that our service men and women have taken a oath to protect us (US and her Citizens) from threats foreign and domestic. That also means to protect us from tyranny from our own government. Please don't forget that We the people are what makes the US powerful.
Thank you for your service, and Gods speed for you in your adventures!

so your actively doing nothing, but reading and educating yourself ok thanks im out of this thread...........
your country is getting ripped apart internally and you know yet your not man enough to be the man that stands up against what is going on
i bet if 20 million decided to do something you'd be on that train but till then your gonna educate yourself some more
when the # does hit the fan im afraid it will be too late and people like you will look back and think we should of done something back then.............

As a military folk myself I completely agree. Dont let those few bad seeds ruin your opinion of the whole group. I know a few bad ones myself but the majority of militay, when you actually take time to get to know them are the better type of person in this country. Wholeheartedly compassionate about their fellow countrymen and upright citizens.
