Military by Balddog4 Military by Balddog4
The Military deserve EVERYONE'S respect. It doesn't matter what country you are in. If you don't respect your military for what they do to you, then you don't deserve to even be called a citizen. The Military is the most difficult job ever and it's under appreciated. And it sickens me to know that people don't like the military. Without the military, then a country will be defenceless from an attack. The military purpose is to protect their country even if it cost them their lives. I'm interested in joining the military, in fact it's because of World War 2 that inspired me to even consider to join the military in the first place.

I love World War 2. I love learning about it. I love everything about World War 2 so much that I sometimes wish I was born in that era to join the fight. Some of you guys may be thinking, "Why do you love World War 2? It was so horrible."

Don't tell me things I already know. I know World War 2 was horrible. The reason why I love World War 2, is the brave souls who gave their lives for what they believe in. I consider every fallen soldier in World War 2 a hero. And I want to be a hero, to someone. I want to save someone who is a complete stranger to me and have them ask "Why?" I'm joining the Military not for killing, but to save someone. Even if it's just one person I manage to save and died doing it. I'm joining the Military despite the reason that I may die. But if I do die, I'll know that it was my choice to give up my life for the sake of others. Which is one thing I desire above all others. If I manage to save one soul because I was there at that moment, then I'll be happy. Even if my life is taken at that moment.

That is why I respect the military so much. And that is why I know how important it is to give the military the respect they really deserve. And why I'm joining in the first place.

"A person who thinks so little of their country military doesn't deserve a country to call their own."-Balddog4 AKA Daniel Bird.

Human history goes as follows: six thousand years, ten thousand wars, two hundred million heroes.

Why should i respect a bunch of idiots fighting for the interests of some rich assholes?

Because they're putting their lives on the line for you and I.

I have respect for the soldiers, the military itself I do not respect. The soldiers are the ones risking it for shit pay, but I do not respect the war hawks or the weapons makers looking to turn a profit from war. 

And frankly, I was much to traumatized by the jingoism of the Bush years to ever truly fall again for blind "patriotism" 

So yes I respect the soldiers, but the respect is not unconditional. 

And believe me, you don't want to be part of WW2. If you joined the Russian side, you'd be probably one of 25 million Soviet Citizens dead. If you were an American, you'd have to be in the thick of the most brutal fighting the states has ever taken part of. 

I believe that the best way to pay tribute to the soldiers of the armed forces is to see to it that they have decent job benefits and a chance for employment when their tenure is done. Far better than wearing a damn pin.

I too respect the military to the point I shake the hand of every vetern and soldier I can, what pisses me off the most though is when the deaths of hundreds a day go unnoticed until memorial day then people have the nerve to say they respect those who paid the altimate price. I for one honor those dead every day I thank them all passed or injured for there service ... and you know what it fills me with so much joy when I walk up to an elderly man wereing a veterns hat and I thank him. His smile makes al right in the world and there is no feelig greater then thanking those who deserve so much more to all brave soldier of past preasent and future, all those who gave some then those who gave it all for th8s great country ... I thank you, no I salute you

Amen to that.

I despise people who disrespect members of the military, American or otherwise.
One must always remember that it is the politicians not the soldiers who start our wars.

And many politicians -were- soldiers themselves. Kim Il Sung -and- Syngman Rhee were insurgents against Japanese imperialism, when they engaged in border disputes which escalated to the Korean War.

Again, politicians. Not all military personnel are that way.
Have you ever met anyone who has served in the military or are you merely regurgitating the things the mass media feeds you? My guess is you only know what the media feeds you.
