    I don't lose much sleep over slavery or the Civil War...except to think both were a colossal waste of time, money and lives.

In fact the president is currently looking into trading some GITMO prisoners of war for one of our own at this very moment.

    I think punishment is in line. Discharge shouldn't be one of those punishments. I would however believe required study of that symbol and some volunteer work is mandatory so this Airmen doesn't make this same mistake twice.

    I am willing to give the benefit of a doubt that just because she wears the uniform doesn't automatically give her the understanding of what the symbol means. What better way to help her learn than to have her participate with the group? She might end up being the biggest advocate for the cause.
    You are far more forgiving than I am. To me the pic shows disrespect for those who came before you and you should not be a member of our military.

    No. I just don't live in the past...and, I certainly do not glorify war.

    You should honor and respect those that fought and or died to preserve this free country that you thrive in.

    It happened three years ago. Chill out. If incompetent officers and asshole politicians could be removed half as easily as you are suggesting this woman be removed from her job the world would be a much better place.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Wouldn't hurt you to be a bit thankful to your elders in the military either.

    "The Scots played an important role in the Allied victory - from the battlefields of North Africa to life on the home front.

    As Britain prepared for war, the heavy industries of the Clyde produced ships, guns, engines and munitions. Six weeks into World War II, the first shots of the air war over Britain were fired above the Firth of Forth as Scots pilots battled the Luftwaffe.

    The HMS Royal Oak at Scapa Flow and the SS Athenia were sunk by Nazi U-boats. Hundreds of lives were lost.

    Scots children were evacuated as people waited for the bombing to begin. The Luftwaffe bombed Clydebank, Glasgow, Greenock, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee - thousands of civilians died and tens of thousands of men, women and children were made homeless.

    Members of the Polish army, navy and air force, stationed in Scotland, fired on the Nazi bombers and fought in the Battle of Britain.
