I was correct, you are an *sshat. Those of us that really support our troops support them 365 days a year. Did you enlist and volunteer to fight in Iraq or Afghanistan?

I know MANY vets that voted for our President. So, you insult our vets by mocking our leader which many of THEM elected to be their commander in chief.

My nephew was happy to serve and is proud to have done it. He now reaps the benefits by taking advantage of the GI bill and is in school while working full time (a job he wouldn't have gotten if it weren't for his service).

If you think we'd be better off dead or in the hands of the enemy, then maybe you need to leave this nation.

What do you do personally to support our troops and retired vets? Actions speak louder than words.

Agreed. Sorry for having my response removed for being repulsed by the first comment on here - which all comments that are showing removed were doing as well. Looks like the original poster just got disappeardeded though. And rightfully so!

Emma, You Rock! Thank you and God bless you for your service to our country and for hanging in there.

Good question, wilbur. Me thinks "alcoholbliss" will never be able to answer. Thank God. Both of these people, Emma and Ernest, whatever their age are truly Golden. Never met 'em but sure do love'em.

Ernest is significantly younger...15 or 20 years i believe. Scandalous ;)
