I sure don't nor do I receive a check every month for having done so but I bet you do. Stop bitching you were paid handsomely to do a job and you done it. No one owes you anything more than what your getting. Suck it up son! Let that be a lesson to the youth to stay In school and get a real job.
You type a lot for someone who knows so little.
Unless this man made a career of the military, he doesn't get a check every month, and if you knew anything about the military you would know servicemen and women have never been "paid handsomely".
This man may have been a kid who was DRAFTED into the service and trained to kill people, no matter that he may not have wanted to serve or fight or kill.... Then after training, shipped halfway across the globe to fight in a place which has been described as a "Hell on earth". He could just as easily have become one of over 50 THOUSAND young men who were killed in a war that public opinion had turned against. Thank God he survived...and upon returning to the USA, was he welcomed by a parade or cheering crowds ? Probably not, most returned to have misguided Americans blame the kids who served, instead of the politicians who ordered them to fight a war those politicians did their best to lose, and the public no longer supported.
How dare you post crap like that ?

Thanks for that OT. Actually, my mom died when I was 6 and my dad at 9 - so I was passed around the family until the state took over. At 17 I joined the Marine Corps to just get out, so I wasn't drafted...I knew where I was headed too and didn't care - that didn't matter, because at that age, you know everything.

Enlistment in 1967 for 17 year olds was 3 years...1st stop was Parris Island, then to Advanced Infantry Training (Camp Lejeune), Next was Camp Pendleton where I was until after I turned 18 and was sent to Vietnam in 1968.

Was only in-country a few days until Dai Do where we ended up fighting around 6,000 NVA - with about 900 Marines. I am particulary proud of my company comander - who was wounded three times and earned the Medal of Honor (although he wouldn't appreciate me saying that), in hand to hand combat.

After Dai Do, a couple of our pvts were transferred from 1st Platoon to 2nd Platoon because 2nd Platoon had only 3 men in it. 1st Platoon still had about 7 men left.

At full strength a platoon would number over forty men. By the end of three days of combat, not one platoon in my company had 10 men. As a new guy, I got the order to help place the dead Marines in body bags...One of the dead was a friend of mine that I'd met at Lejune who had 12 months in - and was about to come home. We had to tie a rope to his arm, move away, and roll his body to check for booby traps.

I don't post this out of bravado nor do I do so seeking pity. I intend to let those who have no idea what war is READ about it and it is my hope that they understand that the only 'equality' in combat is the equal chance of death.

Each of us who has been in combat, whether it be WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, & Afghanistan have our own experiences - personally, a sustained shelling over time is just about enough to break the strongest willed person. I don't want my granddaughters - or anybody's daughter to experience that.

If I require a lecture from you I'll address you in the future. Otherwise mind your own business and don't attempt to tell me how to think. If you wanna kiss his ass then feel free to do so but per his on admission he has lived his life off of tax payers dollars. His misfortune shouldn't become my burden and clearly it has.

If you don't want a lecture, don't post drivvle like that on a public forum.
You need more than a lecture, you need a few lessons in manners, and respect, particularly for those who have served this country in our armed forces.
I recall nothing about his having lived his life off of taxpayers dollars....so perhaps you need to a lesson in reading comprehension as well.

Hey stupid you don't think he got a check from dead parents? You are an idiot. Foster Care isn't paid for by relatives of the child. Grow up you are in the real world and if truth hurts your stupid little feelings then stop logging on.
