    Hey there, I am Seth. I am a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War and the founder of Coffee Strong, an anti-war coffee house outside Joint Base Lewis McChord. I have a degree in Political Economy.

    I guess if I fought in Iraq and the President was trying to tell me we needed to make a democracy over there, I'd be angry too. Heck, I'm not thrilled about having to PAY for it. That place will revert to a dung heap in less than a year after we leave.

    Which President?

    Welcome poster. Thanks for your service.

    25th ID, Afghanistan 2004-2005. I lost a lot of faith in the Iraq Veteran's Against the War when they got suckered by the Jesse McBeth ordeal.

    Hi, I'm not an angry vet, just a veteran.

    I was in 25th ID as well. Aco 1-5 Infantry. Yeah, IVAW checks everyone's DD214s or other records now.

    Welcome aboard, Bobcat.

    I was in third brigade, 2-27 Infantry. Right across the D Quad from the now disbanded 2-5 Infantry.

    What got me about the whole "Ranger" McBeth thing is that you just had to check his goofy souped up uniform picture to know he was full of shit.

    It's too bad, the group lost a lot of credibility after that.
