    I would have been shooting for the army shooting team if I had enlisted. That is what happens when you are a world class shooter at age 19 as I was

    You sure act as if you are a vet. So I ask-when did you serve

    as to that group-ts mostly far righties. Hardly people who'd find your politics worthwhile

    And yet your life is so different and it's so easy to justify your choices?

    I didn't serve. I never made a claim that I did. But I am a fervent supporter of vets. I find their treatment unconscionable by many of those who claim they care.

    That said, there are plenty of vets from both sides of the political spectrum that are pissed off at McCain.

    Iraq, Afghanistan vets criticize McCain over GI Bill


    The head of a nonpartisan group dedicated to helping American veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan today criticized Republican nominee John McCain's opposition to the recently signed GI Bill, predicting that his opposition would haunt him at the polls this November. The comments came as Republican delegates to the GOP national convention put together care packages for soldiers serving in Iraq.


    Honestly? That's it? You discredit this organization as far right and label all in it as such? Well then how about this one? Oh wait, they are no
    "We were baffled by Sen. McCain's position," said Paul Rieckhoff, executive director and founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). "Not only because he's a veteran, but because he has a son in the Marine Corps and a son at the Naval Academy. And he's a guy who went to school on Uncle Sam's dime."

    I did serve. TD you DON'T speak for all/many vets anymore than TC does. There were vets who were war criminals, that was buried deep and fast- though we all remember My Lai... we tend to not call our soldiers war criminals when they rape, murder, loot the civilian population... makes for bad press.

    You would never have enlisted, but you could easily gone through ROTC or even The Point as your family had connections. No slag for a guy to do a few years in service to country as an officer. You combine college with military training, pretty slick.

    Oh as an aside... Marine Hathcock won major competitions to include Camp Perry and Wimbledon Cup and wound up an MP in Vietnam. So no telling where a bright, gifted hard charger such as yourself would have ended up.

    Oh and when it comes to 'dangerous' stateside flying and Guard units. Many Guard units were exempt from call-up and used by those who could pull strings as a good safe place to sit the war out that didn't require you to learn french.
