Serving For Protection
Many people have not been in the military and can not understand why the service man or woman is so dedicated to our Commander In Chief. When we first entered the military we took an oath to protect our Constitution and to obey all orders from our superiors.
We who go to war do so knowing we have taken an oath to defend and protect. We fight so others can stand with protest sign, slam the president, slam how the government works and not be arrested for their spiteful speech.
I honor my brothers and sisters who have served in combat. I honor those who have served in this time of trouble. We all served for the same reason.
Each time I meet a fellow vet I tell them "Welcome Home" you see I am a Viet Nam veteran, I was in the jungle,the river and the cities being shot at, Being at risk from women and children who were taught to harm the US Soldier.
To the veterans who have served and are stilll alive from their war era (WWI, WWII, Korea, Nicaragua, Viet Nam, Desert shield, and Desert storm) I say thank you, Job well done. To our current vets in Iraq and AFghanistan I doff my hat to you, you have served hard, long and repeatedly I say thank you for you Dilligence, your fidelity, and your honor to the country.
