    I don't know about the rest of you have heard this.. but i was kinda flipping through the stuff on the internet today and came across this story. It's not an Army guy, but I feel that it's just as important!! There was a 21 yr old Marine who was killed over seas and there...

    My Brother

    Every man in my family is ex-military or military.  My brother followed suit, and is currently deployed over to southern Afgahnistan. Every time I hear someone bashing military, its like someone flipped a switch, and I freak. They're willing to make the...

    Soldier Bashing & Missing My Son/Soldier Terribly

    I am so moved by what you have written, and your experience. My step-dad (raised me since I was 3) served the Army as a Sergeant (I hope I spelled that right) during Vietnam. He lost both of his legs, one leg had gangrene, however the Army amputated the wrong leg. I have great...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

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

    A Postcard - With Love, The Antiwar Chick
