Great post, Kathianne.
I'd like to go off-topic for a second, though, and make an observation.
I never served in the Armed Forces, but I know that several of our board members have. Perhaps they'd venture an opinion or two on this:
If such a state of affairs could possibly be said to exist, it seems to me that "fewer opportunities to display valor" would be a REALLY GOOD thing!
Back to the topic: screw the MSM/DNC. They have no more grasp of the concept of valor than they do of honor, duty, or country. How dare they even open their mouths?
I agree with the safety thing. With that said, there are so few, doing so much, for so many. I honor them all!
What is this bonehead trying to suggest? Would it make him feel better if our forces fixed bayonets and unnecessarily charged machine gun nests? What this asshole is remiss in acknowledging is that unlike wars past, these brave souls volunteered to place themselves in harm's way. They are at least as valorous as any that came before them and they all deserve decorations for heroism, IMO.
Who are you speaking about, the blogger or USA Today?
Tom Vanden Brook...the guy who wrote the observation of lower medal numbers.
Good, I'm so glad I didn't 'go off' on ya. Did you read the links from Matt? Damn.
bronze,silver and purple will not even buy ya cup of coffee...but it will bring ya grief if ya dare to share your experience with others...you then become the dreaded.."know it all-old fart!" :coffee3:
and you figure that how?
you have mocked me enough for one year!
