    Just Doing Thier Job

    the thing that agrivates me most are the protesters that target military members.  they are doing thier job.  they do what they have to do.  it is the leaders that they need to target and not treat our military members like ****.

    What Does It Mean?

    These days there are plenty of wartime experiences to go around for an entire generation of people that I don't know. My own military experience was at the cutting edge of every unit one could imagine being in combat, but it was 1977 to 1988 and unless you were in the particular...

    "Only two defining forces have ever offered to

    die for you; Jesus Christ and the American solider, One died for your soul; the other for your freedom." I support both God and the Military, because both have been the best things in my life

    How could I not support the military?

    Being a member of the Illinois Air National Guard and not supporting the military is a bit absurd. I will continue to support the military and what they do for us even after my career is over.

    The Troops Not the Governments

    war is a result of failure of governments , we went to war in iraq without any real exit strategy and poor intelligence , and once again our troops and their families are paying the price . their courage and loyalty  has been abused .

    I haven't been in the military.

    Not because I didn't want to, not that the recruiters that came to my high school didn't try, but because I had brain surgery for a tumor when I was 15 and the military wouldn't take me. I appreciate and support all that our troops do. I wish I could do more.
