The Reason For Our Freedom

I support our troops in every way. It doesn't matter if I agree with their missions or not. They don't get to choose where they are sent or what they are told to do. They are the reason that we have the freedoms that we do.
I have heard people say that the soldiers should stand up and refuse to go to war. These people have no idea what it's like to be a soldier. They can only legally refuse an order that is unlawful. To refuse to follow a lawful order not only means the end of their career but it can also end in jail time. The president has the legal right to send a certain number of soldiers any where for legitimate reasons, even if war is not declared. So when they were sent to Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan they had no choice but to go.
It is because there are men and women who are willing to endure hardship and do the things that others aren't that we have the freedoms that we do. It is because of soldiers that people can talk crap about the military and our government. The very people that treat our soldiers the worse have the freedom to be unbelievable douches thanks to those very soldiers. You don't have to agree with governmental decisions to support those that are forced to carry them out. No matter what I am thankful for the men and women who serve in our military and I will always support them no matter what.
