There will be times when one is confused, more so the young and soldier, taught under imposed authoritarian rule, but still humanely link to family,
relatives and friends, the very ones that he signed up, join the military to protect, for they are what when combined, represents society and no man
or woman alone can protect even himself in the face of multiple threats.
The only way out of confusion is to share, discuss and debate with others, not just those whom share similar views, but rather, the opposite views
regardless if it tears up your belief system, to gain better insights. It is only through such sharing then can one gain a better perspective, and
not become a tool of another, for one is responsible for oneself, for credit and its consequences.
Only you alone can live your life.
Emotions are what that often moves us, but logic and reason rules our hearts and minds. Many will try to use the emotional blackmail, using lies and
falsehood such as Tokyo Rose during WW2, or today's stepping over the dead bodies of children, men and women as a trump card to win converts to their
side, disregarding the realities and truth that it had been an insane man at work, and not the tool, that slaughtered, as in most cases of mass
You have free will, and being a Marine means more than just being another grumpy REMF grunt, but a courageous thinking and capable soldier with an
illustrious history that dates back many years, espacially during WW2 and the Vietnam War.
It is your choice on which side you will stand - family, relatives, friends and nation..or support the lone/minority decisions of leader who is only
an equally flawed mortal like the rest of humans, fully capable of making mistakes or selfish decisions.
Soldiers are not robots, but made of flesh and blood and no man is born out of a rock.
