    They are not 'fighting a virus'. I hope you were being facetious when you wrote that...that you dont actually believe that literally?

    I don't like it.

    I have also noticed that putting one's foot in one's mouth up to their knee is also common.
    They can check their blood titers for Ebola. (Look for antibodies...markers...for Ebola in their blood)

    Why would you refuse to go, if that was your decision. Why?

    It's an all-volunteer army.

    He is entitled to his opinion.

    Just because he does know if he wants to ship to a foreign country to offer assistance to non-Americans that are suffering from a disease with a roughly 70% mortality rate...I don't think that makes him a coward.

    I think that makes him human.

    I often disagree with him and agree with you, but I don't think helping non-American, Ebola victims in Africa is what most Americans signed up for when they entered their recruitment office.

    If it was a volunteer-only assignment, I am not sure what I would do.

    But either way, I would be afraid of contracting the illness.

    I hope that does not make me a coward in your eyes - as I have respect for you - but there it is.
    But not afraid of being shot or blown up in a war zone?

    The ignorance I'm seeing in this thread is mind-boggling. People just willfully ignore reality about a disease AND military deployment? Jeebus.

    Sounds foolish. We use our military for aid missions all the time.

    Doctors and scientists fight viruses. Soldiers kill people and break things. They are the Marine corp, not the peace corps. Sending the military in to do construction work is not their function either. I'm not opposed to trying to find a cure or stop the spread of ebola but the military is not trained to do either.
