    I'm sooo grateful that my poor little white boy- no doubt expendable in the world's eyes- chose a non-combat MOS.
    He could've so easily been goaded onto the front lines by all this macho BS.
    I consider myself blessed.

    Macho BS is a bit offending.

    Support is plenty enough risk for him.
    Plus he'll get out with a skill he can actually put to use in the civilian world.

    Whatever suits your son, the military has a place for everyone.
    But it's no secret that front-line soldiers risk the most for their nations.

    They'd be the "Last Resort",,,not "Front-Line Troops". Truth hurts.
    Women may not have the physical attributes of men but that doesn't make them without power and weak mentaly and physicaly. I think you have some pretty negative preconceived ideas about women

    I don't think you have any idea of what women are capable of. You are also trying to say your opinions are fact when they are not. So don't try to deny that.

    Just because women cannot hack the infantry that makes them week and powerless mentally and physicaly by your standards.

    Every person in the military is doing a service to their country and the rest of us. Since when do we rate who is a better by the job they do. The guys on the front lines couldn't even do their jobs witout back up from everyone else, from what they eat to what they wear to thier ammunition someone has to supply them. Who comes in a rescues them when they are wounded and risks thier lives doing so? Our military are a team all working together and no one better or more important then someone else. Without all working together thier would be no infantry.

    I did not deny that.
    I just pointed out at the obvious fact that people who serve at the front-lines are the people who give the most.

    They're the people who risk the most that's for sure.
