I'm from a military family, from WW2 to present day. With that said, soldiers are fighting for corporate interests. Freedom of speech was already in effect since the induction of The Constitution, so no one is in friggin Afghanistan fighting for my right to say a damned thing. Most people join the military because they really believe they're fighting for the country, and that really is a noble thought, but sh!+ ain't like that. And as far as fighting for freedom is concerned, look around you. You're losing freedoms little by little on a daily basis. They send soldiers to die for their corporate interests. Maybe it didn't start out that way, but here, in 2012, that my friend, is the way it is.

I guess our soldiers no longer fight for freedom, they fight for the right to watch Monday Night Football.
Perhaps I just expect more from the "intelligent" creatures humans are suppose to be.
They fight for Americans...period. I don't think a soldier is concerned with what a particular person is interested in and they will fight for you whether you are a sports fan, a pop culture devotee, or a political enthusiast. They fight for your rights, one of which is the freedom to express yourself freely whether you appreciate the scope of their sacrifice or not.
