    Hello all. I'm wickerthing. I enjoy debate and hashing out positions on the issues. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Liberal and proud of it. I'm a Marine Corps Veteran of the Vietnam War era. Served with Fox co. 2/7 1st Marine Div. Was wounded in action at a place called Elephant Valley. I lost my right leg do to infection from being shot. I guess I'm the odd man out as far as combat Vets who are liberal, but that's okay with me. I don't take being called a liberal as an insult, quite the opposite. Looking forward to lively back and forth and maybe making a few new friends.

    Welcome and thank you for your service. I'll be interested to see if it's possible for a "Liberal" to actually debate anymore.

    Welcome, you should have gone sweep sailor All the dangers of war (until the sentry pistols were taking away and no more ringing the bell of the sweep on the other side of the dock with a round on mid-watch) but without the extra pay.
