    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 .

    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.

    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.
