I Can't Stand Solider Basher's

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 324 People

    Not Cool!

    Yeah... this is one way to **** me off and quick! I am from a huge military family. And we have the soldiers-attitude and strive for success. Growing up in my home was much like growing up in a Naval base, strict and striving for our best. And I would have been a solider...

    Why Do You Feel the Need???

    Does it make you feel good to say rude things about our Soldiers? If you don't have anything nice to say don't post your comment to our stories? Write your own story. Us women are trying our darn-est to be strong for our men and we don't need someone putting negative thoughts...

    Recently I Got Very Offended By A Soldier Basher

    I'm as anti-war as they come, but I'm not about to attack a human being simply for doing their job. In fact one of my best friends who is now deceased from alcohol poisoning served in Iraq. He suffered PTSD, depression, and alcoholism and ended up dying from the alcohol abuse...

    I Dig It.

    I don't support the war.  It was a bad idea.  And war in general?  Well, its the responsibility of a country to have a military because of the #$%& that goes down in this world. No matter how I feel about the war, soldiers are heroes.   They deserve...

    I Don't Know Of Any, But It Is Offending

    I've not really heard anyone say anything to bash fellow soldiers who are also fellow countrymen but I agree, it's a stupid thing to do. Someone who Volunteers to aid the country where others who wouldn't dare to, is in some way condemned or poked fun of for it? How shameful. I...

    They Actually Exist?

    I was actually surprised to see this group.  In this day and age, I wouldn't think ignorant soldier bashers existed. I can appreciate that people may not support the war.  Solving our differences through words would be so much more meaningful than...

    A Postcard - With Love, The Antiwar Chick

    A friend of mine was doing a postcard from home program for the soldiers in Iraq at her school. The whole idea was that you would write a postcard to an anonymous soldier and it would make them feel better a bit. Seems like a good idea right? Well, a lot of kids at her school...

    Would Have Thought We Had Learned A Lesson From Viet Nam

    would have thought we had learned a lesson from Viet nam and how we treated the returning vets back then but it is really clear even the goverment still feels like we are nothing more then trash and refused to deal with the truth of what war does to young kids

    Remember.

    Remember who is risking their lives, staying away from their families for months and years at a time, so that you have the RIGHT to open your ungrateful mouth at all. This is such a pet peeve of mine.  As I woman, I have much admiration for the soldiers out there, at this...
