    We all have a choice - keep it civil, walk away from the crap, or jump in and get down and dirty. The high road ain't easy to take sometimes, especially when you care deeply about the issue at hand. The thing to remember is that the other guy probably cares deeply too, even if he/she is obviously wrong. Hopefully I will have the good sense and the humility to that in mind.

    Tons of respect for you infantry guys. Tough as nails. I remember we were tasked with performing some inspections on an aircraft that the airborne were utilizing for jump training. The jet broke for sheet metal repairs after the paratroopers were at the spot.
    This was in Texas...in the summer. Those guys sat in a square (four wide...four deep) in the sun, for hours waiting for us to finish.
    I was amazed that they just sat there. I walked up to the group and said; "Hey, you guys can go sit under the wing if you would like" It was still hot, but at least it was in the shade. Wrong move dude. I was very quickly 'corrected' by their NCOIC. "Who are you?" he said "uuuhhh ummm" I didn't know what to say. I was simply being kind to people who I saw as suffering. "Go fix your plane." Sheeeeit! lol!

    My dad was a retired Army W-3, he's the one who talked me into to Navy (1972), my next youngest brother retired an Army full bird Colonel and the next one under him retired an Army First Sgt ground pounder.
    While I don't always agree with Hoss he has my respect, if I remember correctly he was at the battle of Ia Drang memorialized in the film, We Were Soldiers Once.
