Anyone willing to go to some hell hole for a corrupt government like ours is a true retard.

I went for a 4-year tour, and did not like it.
The worst of all was, my "ole lady" gained 290 lbs while I was gone. I noticed her voice was changing, during that course, and thought I was smelling a rat all the time.
I dam near had a heart attack when I met her at the airport when I got released.
I then wished the hell I could have stayed in the Marines.

My son left today for Afghanistan and I take great offense in anyone calling him a retard. I believe he is showing his leadershop,bravery and love of his country. Unlike some retard who has time to sit on his butt and write rude, offensive comments for someone who is defending his fellow Americans.

He only went over there on his own, so everyone has there own opinion. We still have freedom of speech, so if he wants to call him a retard, thats fine.

He probably needed to get something going for himself, instead of smoking pot.
This younger generation are so lazy anymore, they get bored, and end up somehow, always getting themselves into trouble with the law.
Going to Afghanistan will do him some good.

I know mayor Debs son.. he is a good man and I know he has never been lazy or smoked pot... He owns his own home doesn't live off welfare and he left everything in his life to go fight for all of us for a second time... Doesn't that count for anything... Not right to stereotype

Yes, we do have freedom of speech & people like mayor deb's son are the reason we still have that freedom, so maybe you should show them respect. I am very proud to call myself a friend of mayor deb's son. Don't let people like this get to ya...they are not worth the time. You raised an amazing son. Not to mention, anyone that uses the word "retard" is obviously not very intelligent. That's disrespectful to more than just our soldiers. People like this just want to get a rise out of you, don't let them. Those that matter know that you have one helluva son & despite their feelings on war, will still have the respect for him & all others that defend our 'Freedom of Speech' I'll use mine now to say THANK YOU J.H. & all others who sacrifice so much for others! LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!

I can't believe anyone would use the word "moron" when talking about a solider going overseas to fight for OUR freedom. I mean seriously>? I too agree that if you have time to write all of this on here..you really need to get a life. or try a day, month, or even a year over there and see how much you can handle.. THEY ARE OVER THERE FIGHTING SO WE CAN HAVE THE FREEDOM WE DO! Always thinking of you.. And love ya very much! J.H. & Family! <3
