thank you, and I see your point, but 1) My service was in peace time thankfully, I have profound respect for those that have seen combat. 2) My anger is directed at a possible Marine that may either have been in too long as to become cynical, and lost his way concerning what a Marine stands for, or that the words so not match what every other Marine I know, (Including my nephew who served in the triangle of death in Iraq) would EVER say about his mission, his creed, his enemy that it makes me wonder.I just said that to make a point. Thank you for your service.
I see. Sorry to hear, sounds like you wanted to get in.And no, I never had the privilege of serving. They wouldn't let me in. I had a skull fracture from a car accident. I still have a small dent in the back of my head from it. It was fully healed by the time I tried to join, but they wouldn't take me. I always thought the Army took EVERYBODY. I ended up 4-F.
Ok then, your family sounds like they have an honorable history of serving their country, I salute them for it. But do me a favor and call those members of your family that served and just ask them if they believe that those American's that oppose the Mosque at GZ, or support at least the idea of the Pastor's rights are "Backwoods ignorant Christian hicks" or if those exercising their first amendment rights are "pathetic" and exercising "unearned rights"? My guess is that they would not agree with that type of disdain toward fellow American's than I did.I am the only member of my family who hasn't served, though. One of my brothers was a First Sgt. in the Gulf War.
Anyway, I made my point on this part it.
