Long time no see.
takenoprisoner, you sir, are a moron. Your post at #575 was beyond the pale. You owe our CG sailors and Reserve and NG soldiers a HUGE apology. And you kept stepping in it in later replies where you made aspersive attacks on other posters.
Then, you said: I never "slammed" the Coasties nor the National Guard. When that is EXACTLY what you did in your #575. And all you sickos out here who suck the wangs of the gestapo warriors ,,,
... gestapo warriors ... sure looks like a "slam" to me.
To the question of service, Tonk is correct, I have a copy of his DD214 in the VetsCoR files. Certainly, your post at #575 raises questions about your "alleged" service. I would surely question the service of any veteran who denegrated all their younger brothers and sisters currently serving.
As proof of your "service" you have just listed a bunch of "alleged" duty stations. I'll ask DCWUSMC to respond to your list separately. If you did indeed serve and you can address our current service members as you did, I would call that "kerry-esque" at the very least. If you would care to mail me a copy of your DD214, you'll find the address at www.vetscor.org.
Are all our current service members honorable and upstanding people? Of course not, but the service does its best to weed out the bad apples. Do our current service members make mistakes? Of course they do, they're human. But your blanket smear at #575 is a slap at the vast, overwhelming majority of those who have taken the oath to uphold and defend our Constitution, just as we who went before did. You have done to our current service members what Kerry did to our generation of soldiers.
I will look forward to seeing your apology to our Armed Forces on this thread soon.
