On the other hand I believe it is wrong for a man who has chosen the life of a soldier to openly bash or try to discredit those who are leading the country you have chosen to serve and defend.
I wasn't bashing or discrediting any leaders.......but this is where I have to disagree with you.
You see, being a 5X combat vet going on 6th time and the 4th during the same war...on top of losing a cousin, a childhood friend, 7 soldiers, and 6 very close friends in the last 17 years....
I consider it my right to speak my mind anytime I want.
I am not a "Sheep" and I never will be, I tend to speak my mind right or wrong...believe me, many dislike what I have to say or for my thoughts, but it has gotten me this far in life; thru bullets flying in serveral different countries, being in a conflict zone that you will never hear about or losing friends in a place that will never be published, IEDs explosions from school buses, taxies, and medical vehicles right next to you that cause blood to run out your ears.....or watching a 9 year old girl dying in your arms cause some National Guard soldiers couldn't tell the difference between outgoing and incoming artillery and fired up what ever was in front of them because a crowd of kids playing soccer looked suspicious.
I consider myself lucky in my life....I think my actions and perceptions have helped my luck become more of a "skill" getting thru the days and making it home to my wife and daughters.......
