For all of you who claim US troops are mindless mercenaries...
Have you ever served?
Do you understand what sacrifice TRULY is?
What have you done to help others? Other than griping on a conspiracy website?
I served. I served because I loved this country. I joined in March of 2000, before the world was how it is now.
I sacrificed. I went to war. I lost friends. I missed the funerals/births of family and friends back home.
I had my disagreements with what my 'leaders' were doing, and honorably separated from service. Others of like mind either separated or carried on,
depending on the needs of their families.
And just FYI... those 'mindless' mercenaries are our only hope of possibly returning this country to what was envisioned in the Constitution.
The problem is not the troops.. it is ALL of US. How the hell did 92% of Congress get reelected with only 15% approval? Because we are lazy and
apathetic and care more about Miley Cyrus' vagina than we do about what goes on in Washington and subsequently around the world.
You want to make a difference?
Give someone in need some cash/water/food/love today.
Educate yourself and what your duty as a citizen of this nation is. WATCH your politicians and hold them to account. WRITE LETTERS! Fight for your
rights because no one else is going to!
I get out once a week just to drive around and give random 'homeless' (I think) people bottled waters and $5 because I've been blessed. I don't
ask them nothing, I just tell them I love them and hope what I give them helps.
I write my local congressional 'representatives' to express my extreme displeasure with how they are allowing themselves to be used through bribes.
They probably have my address on a database somewhere.
As a veteran, thanks aren't required. Most of us would only really like you to not label us as 'baby killers' or other such nonsense. We know all
to well about the attrocities committed by some of our brethren, and believe you me, we abhor and hate those animals as much as the rest of you do.
Okay, got that out of my system. This world is in bad enough shape, every little bit of good, no matter how trivial it may seem, helps.
