every Memorial Day we say thanks to our vets and active servicemen on this site and then I read all the anti military and anti American bullshit and it just gets old. I get pissed off because you can't talk to people that don't really understand what's it like to be a veteran or the family of one.
people enjoy the results of the sacrifices made but most will never understand what's really involved.
it's been more than a few years for me but the shit never really goes away. sounds and smells bring back all kinds of memories good and bad. you always remember the things you want to forget like a friends last breath.
I know someone will tell me I'm a pussy and all us vets are murderers. they have that right. we gave it to them. it's just not worth the anger to argue with them anymore.
to all the vets and their families all my prayers, respect, and love.
just an old veteran
