Sounds about right from a coward Liberat that never served his country nothead.

Stay anonymous nothead. If identified, there would be a line 10 likes long waiting to kick your coward ass.

I had the honor of meeting these gentleman yesterday and I am still amazed at how vividly they recall their experiences during WWII. Each one served our country proudly, giving all they had to give and then some. My prayer is that not only our students but all Americans will continue to remember those who fought so bravely then but also to remember those who are even now in the throws of war. I was given a pin yesterday that says "Remember Pearl Harbor" from one of the Pearl Harbor Survivors. His eyes were teary as he asked me to please never forget. I promise, I won't.

I don't know of you could possibly be serious. I was at the meeting, and, firstly, these men do not have an ounce of hate in there body. Four of them were present at the attack on Pearl Harbor and saw there friends murdered in a secret attack on American soil, and they have moved beyond, and said it is no longer of consequence. These men were not egotistical and they certainly were not self-righteous. You are so ignorant on the matter, I am not even sure why I bothered responding. Those men were some of the most decent individuals I've ever met, and I will not sit by and hear them panned by some deluded, useless idiot who has no idea what the word "honor" means.

I judged the men based on actually meeting them and having some knowledge of the subject. You have based your hatred on some bizarre, unfounded opinion that the people who fought to stop the expansion of Nazi Germany and committed the terrible act of having bombs dropped upon them. If these men had the same moral fiber you did, we would be speaking German right now and you would be perfectly content in a fascist state. If you give me one actual piece of evidence to suggest that these men were as evil as you claim, I will at least give some acknowledgment to you, but until that point, I would prefer for you to remain silent, if not reverent, to those things you don't understand.

Nothing you have said would lead anyone to believe you "served my country admirably".

Your spews are cowardly and childish. Those types never serve admirably. Those that do try to serve usually get thrown out with "Less than Honorable conditions."

You have no credibility.

The comments I have seen here are atrocious! How could anyone insult such brave and enduring veterans? They may not want to be called heroes, but to the rest of the level-headed nation, they are a symbol of security and patriotism. It's too bad that some of you associate political parties with patriotism, or lack their of, and assume that these men who served our country bravely in the face of defeat deserve any less than national praise where it is justly due. There is a reason why historians call this group of people the greatest generation... how many people do you know today would, in spite of atrocities committed against themselves and their country, would forgive and forget with such an open mind? I was in attendance at the seminar and spoke with most of the veterans and none of them held any grudge or reservations against any of the nations we fought in WW2... could you summon the strength to do that? Let's be reasonable here, and give respect where it is due. These men have some truly inspiring tales to tell, and if you can't learn from your history, you will be doomed to repeat it.

I will not remain silent, meeting someone once does not give much insight into how they really are. Too many people are faking it and they have been doing it all their life.

If i knew who they were i could tell a lot more about who they really are; since i don't the matter is settled.

It doesn't matter what you say, for in times gone by there was no acknowlegement of people of color doing anything for this country while serving in the military. Look how you bums treated them when they returned from the many wars fought. Don't hand me that crap. They served well and with great honor and distinction to keep america safe only to return to a segregated society. I hate the very thought of some despots belittling my service. You bums need to get a grip and learn that military service doesn't belong exclusively to right-wing white soldiers.

Yeah, right! No one asked them about how they treated their fellow black soldiers since they were southern boys. I betcha they won't answer that one truthfully. The evil that men do, often goes untold. Bump y'all.

I'm sorry, but are you referring to the black ones? There were two of them who had a far higher opinion of the U.S. military than you do

If anyone here is expecting anything useful or intelligent from nothead please just ignore the fool.

He is a proven liar and troll. Nothing he says should be taken as honest or truthful.

He is a sorry little man, just too stupid to pity.

The worst part about Fleahead is he calls himself a Christian. He is a pitiful example of life.
