But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This is not about me my left wing friend but I was in Cam Rahn Bay for 13 months and made 2 ten month deployments on and AOE-1. For those 32 months I drew combat pay....I was a sailor and unless your a SEAL or EOD you rarely are in actual combat.....I will say I am proud of the time I spent in Viet Nam in a support position working 6 and 1/2 days a week...............Now lets get back on the topic of whether women should serve in combat.....Thank you.

    PS Oh and please quit posting on my page...I only like to receive post from my Conservative friends and you are damn sure not one of them........This is the last post I will responf to about me in this thread.

    So in other words you were POG (pronounced pōg )and didn't actually see any actual combat duty and yet you have the audacity to ask if people responding yes to the poll not only served in the military but did combat duty as well?

    The one I like is when John Wayne was speaking at some Liberal college in New England..........He said he had no problem with women working as long as they were home by 5:PM to fix dinner.

    I don't agree with JamesRage on everything, but he's certainly not left wing.
