Semper Fi (Always faithful)... This means more to me than any other saying i have heard. Those who bash the military are close minded.
With that said Semper Fi can extend out beyond the military circle and if it would be used more regularly, things could be a lot better in the US. We
as citizens and soldiers need to vote for people who will always be faithful to America and her citizens (not greed, lust and all the other crap we
find our selves fighting everyday). Yet being faithful goes beyond giving us want we want to hear all the way to telling us how it really is and
acting in a faithful manner in ever other aspect of their lives.
I believe many of our Soldiers have deep thoughts and most of the time they cant share them publicly. Soldiers were citizens before they enlisted and
they return to being citizens once there time is up. They understand what the country is turning into better than most of us.
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
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!
