Brother I share your feelings and frustration...the truth is you fight for the guy next to you....let me give you a scenario...lets say america is
invaded...or better yet our government throws down and starts carting people away....Im the guy that will do everything I can to defend us...my words
may even be treasonous at this moment considering I just said id fight our own government if it ever came to such extremes.
Sure maybe not every bullet flung was in the name of the people...im bitter as hell about it...im a very high percentage disabled vet from my
time...but in the back of my mind i feel I did everything I could to give people the best life I could around me when I was there or serving
I never felt that when I was a cop...at all....I never felt as a cop I was protecting anything...the jobs should be similar....you would hope right?
For whatever reason I felt that pride and honor as a soldier but I never felt it as a cop. I felt law enforcement was a dirty
I appreciate your service...I have always held my door open to vets and spent countless hours and dollars helping them...its not our fault our
governments are idiots...we were betrayed by them on so many levels...but we still have a responsibility to the people.
I think in the future...if America doesn't snap out of its rut...and collapses...you will see that the first people that come to our aid is the
soldier...at least I hope anyway...and if they dont....then it will have to be people like me and you...who know better.
So in essence yes...I feel we always represent the group of people who will fight for everyone's rights when the time comes.
