A LTTE of mine from a while ago:

Dear Editor:

For over xxx years now, American service members (all volunteers) have been fighting in combat in the war against terrorism in far away lands.

I was “over there” also, serving with the US Army in Afghanistan.

So why do they do it? Why do people voluntarily risk their necks for a year at a time while we sleep safely in our beds?

After many, many conservations with the “grunts on the ground,” I can report the following informal conclusions on reasons that do not motivate them to fight:

1. No one is fighting so that a mother can abort her child up to the day before delivery for any reason.
2. No one is eating MREs for 6 months straight so that they can pay higher taxes.
3. No one is risking their life on a daily basis so that “Daddy and His Boyfriend” can be taught to our children in public school.
4. No one is dodging mortar rounds so that trial lawyers can sue companies and doctors into oblivion.
5. Not one grunt is sleeping in the mud so that one day he can register and/or turn-in his personal guns when he gets back home.

Something to think about in the upcoming electoral season.

Regards,
