I think I'm going to be ill.
What shlock that song is!
People in the military VOLUNTEERED for the job.
Most people who volunteer are hoping to get away from abject poverty or hoping to get a free college education. Nothing wrong with that. I just have a difficult time believing that a majority of them VOLUNTEERED to join a hopeless fight against terrorism, in a god forsaken place, in an endless, unwinnable war.
But, the military thrives on recruiting very young and naive individuals.
And, it's heartbreaking to see the faces of the dead fine young American soldiers flashed across my TV screen, every single week. Then, there are the many thousands who come home with missing limbs or less than sanity.
If you want to really support the troops, scream at your President and your Congressional representatives every month, until they have the good sense to end these wars and bring our troops home.
