I May Disagree With the War But I'm Proud of the Soldiers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 150 People

    All Soldiers

    All Soldiers have hearts of gold to risk their life, as well as completely let go of comfort, for the sake of "their country's safety." I talked to a soldier once who said he was left in a ditch with absolutely nothing for 8 days and had only the spiders crawling past to eat...

    Least We Forget

    On a whole, I think war is the single most grievous act that man may do. To kill, to maim and destroy in the name of anything is wrong in my eyes. But soldiers, I cannot look at them with anything but pride. Men and women willing to die for the sack of other's can be viewed as...

    I Feel Sorry For The Soldiers Manipulated Into This Mess

    They got lied to in the recruitment stage, and then got their rights signed away. If we really supported the troops, we would get them out of Iraq. This bullshit "Support the troops" is just another code word for "Support the war". All crap if you ask me. I dont support what...

    Damn Right I`m Proud Of Our Troops

    I am a Nam vet and when I served we were just doing our job and protecting our country, our motto "KILL`EM ALL LET GOD SORT THEM OUT." Later I realized that Nam was wrong but we were doing what we were told to do. Since then our troops have fought in several terrible places...

    Hope You Come Home Safely

    Thank you for the service to this great country.  You are both brave and selfless to have chosen the path you took.  I hope you safely return home to your family and loved ones.  It saddens me to see that soldiers suffer or lack necessary items.  If you don't already know...

    My sister's husband's brother,

    (I'm not sure what relation that makes him to me,) just came back from the war. He has a wife and a new baby to love and I'm proud of him. I wish him and all the other soldiers out there the best, because volunteering your lives to protect and serve our country is honorable and...

    My Baby Brother

     Is in Iraq. Somewhere. Never stays in one area. He moves around a lot. I see him only on my facebook that was set up so he could keep in touch with us. He doesn't tell us what he's doing. I know he is in Special Ops. He is coming home in about 30 days for a time. I don't...
