    Just take a look at the phony Navy Seal of the week show.



    There are so many fake veterans running around the country. Whenever I see someone showing a shirt or hat stating he is a vet my flag goes up. There are some legitimate vets out there for sure but there is a high number of fakes. Just as I admire the Patriot Guard Riders for showing up when the Westboro Baptist morons protest at a funeral I can bet that there are at least a couple non-vets parading as vets.

    Our military is over-glorified.

    Look, I'm a vet and I think that what this guy did is pure assholery but I don't want to see charges pressed. I didn't choose to take on the responsibilities of a service member so that some day we could start criminalizing stupid and thoughtless behavior. Feel free to shame the guy and call him out for being a fraud but federal charges are just out of line for something this stupid.

    I will ask you again, seeing as how you ignored my question the first time.

    Did you serve?

    " ...They also serve, who only stand and wait." What does it matter? It's a storm in a teacup in the grand scale of things. A cop, a fireman, a nurse, all put their lives on the line, sometimes more frequently than any soldier.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Still dont want to tell me who these upper class people that just are given high rank are that never have to sacrifice are huh Why am I not surprised.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    I agree with you that he should not be charged with anything. He is just a POS that needs attention. With that said though I think those that make up service or embellish what they did in order to get hired for certain jobs or to substantially gain financially should be prosecuted. But yeah this guy should get nothing other than maybe an ass kicking from some former Ranger BN guys.

    You are entirely misinterpreting here what Milton meant.
