    The Apostrophe Is Redundant

    But so are the soldier bashers. They're just doing their job. Be thankful that they do! The soldiers, I mean.

    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...

    All Soldier Basher's Please Read!

    I have 3 cousin's and a close family friend currently in the army. This poem has been on my fridge door for a few years now & I thought it might remind the soldier basher's just what they take for granted because our loved-ones fight for them. It was sent into...

    SOLDIERS Bashers Grr

    This group is one of my favorites. Ya know people that bash the soldiers obviously never met or talked with a soldier. They have no idea what goes on with soldiers, or how hard there job is. People that bash soldiers, need to do some researching or meet a soldier, they have no...

    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...

    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...

    Soldier Bashing & Missing My Son/Soldier Terribly

    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...

    No People DO Bash Soldiers NOT Just The Policies

    My husband has only been in a yr.  He got back from basic and AIT, and he did two weeks of home town recruiting.  He had to go a walmart and walk around and see if he couldn't get a lead.  This woman walked up and called him a murderer.  He was like,"I've...

    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...

    A Postcard - With Love, The Antiwar Chick

    They Actually Exist?

    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

    If you can't stand behind our troops,

    try standing in front of them. And coming from someone who served in the Navy, you better believe that I'll always stand up for my fellow sailors and soldiers.
