    You tell me why your experiences matter, you're the one that posted at least three times on this thread that you were a veteran prior to offering comment on the subject at hand.

    You just don't sound like a disciplined, respectful, proud American warrior to me, given your lack of concern over an intentional desecration of those who fought and died for the United States.

    Also, "Airborne Infantry" isn't an MOS, which is what you were asked.

    I don't think she should be fired.

    She's probably a progressive who would petition to have me fired if I spoke ill of democrats but as a libertarian freedom of speech and expression applies to all. I certainly don't agree with her "expression" however our First Amendment is quite clear, however her employer can do what they like.

    Yes, your libertarian roots mean you are better than her because it precludes you from prejudging people at all...

    Actually I never mentioned it until you and the other decided to try to speak for all veterans as if you knew us.

    At which point I informed you that you in fact did not speak for all of us. You then ask for my MOS as if that matters as to what I actually said.

    Making a dumass picture with your hands over your mouth next to a sign is not "desecration", you're just being melodramatic.

    And yes, infantry is an MOS, and airborne is a special identifier.

    Educate yourself next time before you speak, and don't try to speak for the entirety of a group, especially one you know absolutely nothing about.

    She is exactly what's wrong with this nation. There is no shame in anything, **** authority is the mantra. The Woodstock children are now raising children and in positions of authority themselves. What did you expect?

    Oh and I'd bet my years paycheck that she's an OBama voter.

    Gotcha. I still have my ASU's too, but I'm not even going to try to fit my fat ass in them, lol.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It has nothing to with precluding from prejudice and everything to do with, well everything else. Like morals, ethics, honesty. Just about anything to make a better society.

    If you think that some idiot holding her hands in front of her face in front of a sign is what's primarily wrong with this nation, you must not have any idea what's going on in this country whatsoever.

    People have the right to be disrespectful on their facebook (freedom of speech), it's one of the many rights the men of this country fought and died for.

    I truly pity you if you can't see what our national debt and wars are doing to this country.

    Yes it is. 11B, with Airborne identifier.

    Welcome to the new progressive USA, where people can be fired for their beliefs.

    You progressives set the tone for this nonsense.
