It's just not said enough, THANK YOU ALL!!!
I agree 100% and Though my time in the Navy was difficult at best, It made me grow up in a hurry, and see the world for what it really was. The connection I had with those I served with will always be with me until the day I die, and they will forever be a part of me. I credit my time in the service as the best education I ever recieved.Hamster Lewis said:I credit serving in the USAF early in my life for having a major impact on shaping who I am. More young people shld serve and have things like discipline and team work instilled in them. Jmo

"Those like you make me sorry I served". Spears
Sorry you feel that way, i read god bless a few times so i said what i said, i dont see the connection between what i said and families visiting the war memorial, you cant possibly be aware of all their personal beliefsSPEARCHUCKER said:I dont care what someone believes. But you making it your point to add, "I dont say god bless", when its totally uncalled for or needed in you post. I dont care for.
Your adding your own belief to something that isnt about you.
Im in DC. I was at the Nam Wall yesterday. Just like I go to every military holiday. Id dare you to walk around telling people that. You dont know how many people there you would badly hurt even unintentionally. Talking about fallen peoples parents, siblings, children. And you feel the NEED to add something like that.
You could have made a great post without adding that. And I dont see any reason why you felt that need to put that in. Today aint about you or any of your freedoms to do so. Its about those who put their everything their existence on the line to give us that.
SPEARCHUCKER said:Im not riled up. Just today isnt about you or what you believe.
You dont say god bless, but many of them did. And youre trying to take that away from them when your belief didnt need mentioning at all. Thats all Im saying.
Id feel the exact same way. As being a black man and seeing you say, "well thanks all those that served except the black ones."
Spear i didnt know you were black so with all this equal equality stuff and me being a WHITEY i must be wrong and you must be right.
Either way. To me, you were just insinuating taking something away from someone that has fallen for you.
And I hope I explained it ok. Cause I dont think it was your intent to be cynical, but how it could be interpreted as such.
