Thats a line of BS... yes I honor our soldiers and I have respect for them each and every day, but what about a teacher? or a doctor? Enriching children's lives and saving lives every day... would we give them credit for that if they murdered a 4 month old?? I dont know any soldier that would condone it... ever... he fought for our freedom and we respected him... now he MURDERED an infant... a beautiful little girl... and I lost that respect. Stop giving him reasons it was okay!!
