I support some form of public service be it either military or community based.

Both my wife and I are veterans. Fortunate to have not seen combat ,, more a timing thing ,, but that wouldn’t have stopped her or me from going at it.

I do find it ironic that the Left which pushes all these new freedoms for gays and women so readily sacrifices others to fulfill their own agendas. but that’s business these days in politics..

It is most definitely ironic. Another irony is the way some American Jews view the military. I understand wanting peace, most of us do, but it was the American military, along with our allies, who stopped the attempted genocide of Jews by Hitler. They need to be reminded of this. One of my very best friends from college is a pacifist, pretty much anti-military Jew. Ironically, his grandparents were Holocaust survivors. In my view he should understand the incredibly important and too often thankless job the military does to give us our freedoms, and appreciate that some ‘kids’ who had their youth taken from them so they could defend us on foreign soil were the ones who opened the gates of Auschwitz.
