I was just reading a story about a Staff Sergeant at our base who was recently awarded 2 silver stars and it's a pretty big deal. According to the article:
"The Air Force cited Harvell for exposing himself to enemy fire to direct air support that killed hundreds of enemy combatants during battles in May and July 2007."
These guys in this squadron (among many more in the military) are fighting for freedom, and fighting to keep the wars off American soil. Yet in any article where a military person has been commended, there's always negative comments.
I guess I just don't understand how someone can be so anti-troop. Anti-war I totally understand, but why make rude, negative comments about someone who risked their own life to keep their fellow troops safe and to help defend the freedoms of someone else, and who is trying to keep the war off our own soil (which, if we didn't take care of the terrorists IMHO, they WOULD attack)?

If you don't want to stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them. That's the way I feel about it!!

Sorry lol, I thought I posted the link! Here's the story I was referring to:
This is definitely not the worst I have heard, but I can't stand when people try to make it seem like the military really is just a bunch of cold hearted killers who care nothing about the people who are killed in war.
