    I just edited my post to remove the information. I'm heartily agreeing with Asterism after reading some of the posts in other areas. How sad that I don't even feel safe posting about someone I love who's serving this country. I'm logging out and won't return.

    The band Heart just recently released a new music video for their song Dear Old America. Not only am I a huge fan of Heart and this is an awesome song, but this video is amazing for the fact that it acknowledges men and women who either have served in the military or who are currently serving. Heart had veterans and current military personnel submit pictures to be featured in the video. It's great to see them appreciated!

    While listening to Pandora Internet Music today this song came on. I post it to honor American service people everywhere including our SFCOllie.

    We all make choices in life, and we the price for those decisions.

    It is a shame some people require "tough love" to understand reality. Peace be with you.

    I hate that you say "serving" in Iraq or anything like that. That implies that they are helping us citizens in any way shape or form. No. The only people who are being served by these oblivious "soldiers" are the corporate and government officials making money off of it.

    They are serving because they volunteered to be the military force that the civilian leadership uses to defend us. They aren't the ones who decide where they go.

    Is a firefighter serving by putting out a fire at a crackhouse? Is an EMT serving by intubating a suspected rapist?

    Yes in both cases.

    they're serving the crack fiends and the rapist

    but I"m not about to get into a semantic argument with you. This has nothing to do with the word "serve" and all to do with the idea that we owe any kind of debt of gratitude to us military officials
