a giant salute to all of those who serve in the armed forces, and to those in their families who hold things together while they are serving. I know we have some here. A tremendous feeling of appreciation for all of them/you.

It's folks like you who are a large part of the motivation!

Lots of gung ho there! My own DS is a Marine, so I've heard/seen some of this before. When he was in Camp Lejeune, it was "anything goes" for bumper stickers. At his current assignment, it is less acceptable. Too bad that killing and being killed in war is reduced to simply a bumper sticker.

I don't know how you could take a little humor and twist it into that meaning but whatever makes you feel better. Personally I find your comment insulting.

Exactly - I am curious as to the reaction of the spouses of those serving overseas. I hope they will chime in.

They made me feel proud and glad to have them on my side!

Not to worry though. We don't get to pick and chose who we protect. We protect those who even find us sickening.

What was insulting about that?

That was uncalled for. I have had and currently have family members serving in the military. To imply that I find them sickening is frankly ignorant.
