Hat tip to AFVet, an Air Force Vietnam Veteran and American Patriot for this Commentary
I admire the men and the women that are willing to serve in the
U.S Armed Forces
They are Patriots, heroes, and people that should be looked up to as to their integrity and their courage to enlist in the first place.
Sadly, many among us have no desire to defend this fine Country, nor are willing to learn how to do so.
They would rather sit back and reap the benefits of the ones that were brave enough to enlist.
So,…. are they Heroes ?
Ask them,…. they will say no, just doing my job.
Many times that job resulted in the loss of limbs due to the cowards that would not expose themselves, rather they hid behind women and children, melting into the community, and our troops could not define them as the enemy.
Women and children being used as walking bombs.
The same thing was going on in Vietnam.
Our soldiers were hard pressed to know who the enemy looked like.
These are the tactics of cowards.
These are the tactics of people that are afraid of openly confronting a great military.
These are the tactics used by people that cannot play a fair game, hence they cheat.
This is very similar to what we have developing in the US government, or, for that matter, is in place now.
The philosophy is the same.
Hide the enemy.
I did not want to take the Patriotic spirit away from this post.
We are America
The finest military is on display everyday, all over the world.
Let us never forget the doctors and the nurses that tended to the wounded.
Let us never forget the paramedics that transport them from the field to the hospitals.
Let us never forget the valiant warriors that this Country has produced.
We should be very proud
No matter what happens in the future, we are Americans and we are the voice of Freedom throughout the world.
No one can ever take that away from US.
I would also add that the parents of these brave individuals are to be commended for their courage to feel confident enough in their children to allow them to go off on an adventure that will change them forever,
Mr. AFVet, I’d be your Wing Man any day!
