The person who sent this to me made the statement in her note" talk about un-american" how can he bad mouth the troops. She obviously missed this young mans grief, anger and guilt. This comment came from someone who has never been in the military orThe person who sent this to me made the statement in her note, “talk about un-american.” How can he bad mouth the troops? She obviously missed this young man’s grief, anger, and guilt. This comment came from someone who has never been in the military or even votes. Now she wants to have a “military conversation” with a Marine Veteran??? She goes on to say that Vietnam and Korea were not our wars but believes that Afghanistan and Iraq are. She doesn’t get the fact that you can be in the military and not agree with the government’s decisions, but you do it because this is the job you chose to take on—no matter what war you are or were in.
The point is you join the military because you love your country! Sometimes a country goes in with good intentions that turn to shit. Troops came home from Korea and Vietman and were spit on! Troops came home from WWI, WWII, and Desert Storm and are heroes! When all the troops are out of Afghanistan and Iraq, they too, will be heroes. Well guess what?? They are all heroes! All troops, all branches, and every war and conflict we have been in!! They signed up to do a job and they did it. So to my sister (the un-american non-voter) you can kiss my marine corps ass!!!!!!! Talk about having a battle of wits with an unarmed person. I dont think she’s really my sister. I think she is the long lost sister of Jane Fonda.
