    No one twisted your arm and made you.

    If you were drafted, that's a different story

    You damn right I did and I served so people like you can feel free to knock the very guys that are protecting your ass


    I have 4 kids and saw ones birth.......missed numerous holidays and birthdays so you could stay home and celebrate them with your family......

    People like you who have no respect for what the military does make me sick.....

    Hats off to you for that sir. That is admirable. I have many times myself considered going back home to join the South African army. But a young white guy would be mince meat these days... not to mention the pay is virtually worthless.

    But I mean, I don't think EVERYONE on the left is against the military. And from my experience not everyone who joins the armed forces of a country is patriotic.

    There is a balance somewhere Navy. Most people are reasonable.

    Too bad we all can't work for the government and get those good bennies. If we did, that would make us a somewhat a socialist nation would it not?

    I understand your frustration. It is valid. However, don't begrudge our career vets anything they are afforded. They deserve it. They are the last one's we should be bitching about.
    I'm not begrudging them.

    I don't think it's fair that the rest of us, who have other things going in life that prevent us from joining, to suffer the shorter end of the stick.

    I can't help my body was not able to function to the standards the military wanted, I was born that way.

    Yes you're right though, the bureaucrats get far to generous benefits.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Haven't you been complaining about Medicare being socialism for the last 5 years? Isn't this a good thing for your side?

    I think 15% on the most leftern (new word) end are whackos. I think the most 15% on the extreme right end is whacko too.

    It's fun when they both cross at the same intersection.

    You shoulda seen what we were doing at the fantail. You wouldn't have approved Chief. When we would see a Zero walking up, you could just see dozens of glowing coals going into the sea.

    God I miss the fleet.

    Thailand too.

    But why are you complaining about the program taking a 500 billion hit? Isn't that a good thing? Think about it Navy, a huge socialist program taking a 500 billion hit? That has to count for something.
