Here we go again.
But not this time. Not on our watch
Over the years I have mellowed. I was one of many that were stigmatized as baby killers on my return to the US (VN). Even though I was a sailor and not necessarily a combat soldier I was looked upon as a killer of babies and innocent women just because I wore a uniform.
I fought back by wearing my uniform with pride and never backed down to any of the cowards that assailed me at every turn. And all that cursed me were cowards, never once did I get one of them to confront me one on one. Cowards all.
And like you I say “not on my watch”
I support the troops every chance I get. I thank every person I see in uniform for their service. I salute them (as a former military person I’m allow to do so).
Some may think I’m nuts, so be it ... I appreciate those that are willing to serve.
