Yes, I am in the military, master sergeant, active duty. I have high reverence for the military, but not for many of the individual soldiers. Reason why, I see too many "shammers" that regard the military for their own taking, then complain about everything. I really like how television put the military in good light, but I don't like when soldiers say that they are fighting for our freedom when I can't get them to do anything, least press their uniforms. I also get sick to the stomach when I see soldiers having umpteen kids when I ask inside why did they sign up in the first place. Your defense?Answer Question

Well first of all, I salute you soldier who is fighting for our freedoms and security of our nations! Secondly, I am sure that you have a bunch of whiners and contemptuousness, as that is what our younger generation is all about. The great soldiers of WW1 and WW2 don't exist anymore. Many military got into it during the cold war thinking they would never see combat, wanting the government to pay for their education and to travel and see the world. Then when they are called to duty, they whine and complain. Not all military, just those who are described by the OP. If the heart is in the right direction, why shouldn't they sign up if they have umpteen kids?

You couldn't be more incorrect about this. I happen to have a brother in law who is and a husband who was (disabled Gulf War vet) one of those great soldiers. Just because a few members (in the span of the entire military) want to jack around doesn't mean that every soldier is. After all, I am sure that Master Sargent Anon :) isn't.

Anon 11:10, apparently you didn't read my entire post, I said Not all military, just those who are described by the OP. WW1 and WW2 vets were a rare breed, in whole, not partial, and if you study that you'll find it true as well. That NEVER NEGATES that there are awesome men and women in our military!! I applaud them, I revere them, I salute them, I support them, I am grateful and in debt to them. Remember, please read the entire post before becoming too defensive. To your brother in law and your hubby.......I thank them for their sacrifice, their bravery, their service to our country! I thank you and your sister in law as well, for you sacrifice and are equally brave! I think that we do not support our military and their families enough! I even donate to the wounded vets fund and disabled vets.....I wholeheartedly support them, my hubby is a Ranger, no longer active. I totally referred to the ones described by the OP
