I was at the PX at Bragg, waiting in line for pizza, reading my book, head down, and I noticed the guys behind me were sorta rank. Like just finished with a run stink.
Turned around and looked at them.
One was left leg below the knee amputee. The other was right leg above the knee amputee. They were in PT gear. Waiting in line for pizza.
I gave them my spot in line and paid for their pizza.
I heard that one of them later requalified for jump status. I don't know that for a fact.
These guys and women too are such great positive thinkers, many of them. They put some of us pretty much healthy folks to shame don’t they.
When you tell a liberal that these war vets fight tooth and nail to return to duty, they fix you with a blank stare. I firmly believe they “erase” the comment because it doesn’t jibe with their false beliefs.
