    Thanking all those who have served, both past and present, living and deceased, for your unwavering altruism. I, for one, am forever grateful.

    This says it all. Nothing more to add but "Thanks for your service".

    And remembering those - killed, scarred, maimed - who
    didn't do it for altruism but because they were told to.
    RIP

    They acted responsibly and accepted authority. The price of freedom then and now
    is military victory which has always involved the loss of our blood and treasure.

    What service? Killing in the name of Washington-driven corporate colonialism?

    Nothing to be proud of there.

    Only in the eyes of the ignorant. Some people have to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep your lot cowering under the bed safe and free.

    Military victory involves the loss of your enemy's blood.

    I had the humbling honor of meeting John Mims... World War II veteran, former prisoner of war, and a survivor of the infamous Bataan Death March. Google if you don't know of him. Everyone should.

    Politics aside.

    Recognize bravery, honor, service and sacrifice.

    It is alive and well in our great nation and many other nations as well.

    A belated Happy 240th Birthday to our USMC.
