    Powerful statement.
    God Bless our men and women in uniform.
    And may we always remember to thank those who, though no longer in uniform, held the line over the last century to protect our nation, our neighbors, and each other.
    We appreciate you.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    No government document gives anyone any rights. They simply recognize them, and enumerate a small number of them. It’s unfortunate that any of them must be fought for.
    God bless all those who fight for their rights, and especially those who fight for the rights of others.

    Add the volunteers, the Red Cross, the ASPCA, the ACLU… altruism is good for the species.

    Support for the military should not have to mean support for militarism.

    “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, wether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”—-Dwight D Eisenhower

    Keep our soldiers safe. We owe them our devotion. OUR country’s media should be focused on ending the war in Afghanistan ASAP.

    FOR DREDPIRATERBT$": We’re not honoring the military establishment, but the VETERAN and INDIVIDUAL SOLDIER, who goes where he/she is told and does what they are told to do…..put their life on the line in the name of this country. I was one of the soldiers in Vietnam, got a terrible welcome when I returned home…..but, you know, I did not start the war, I was not in politics, I did not HATE the enemy, but I had a job to do and I did it….and then came home to small minded masses who blamed me for the political actions of well-paid politicians. Sometimes life’s a bitch….then we die….but at least our soldiers die for a cause.

    I never knew anyone who blamed the soldiers for the mess in Vietnam. If that happened to you, I’m sorry to hear about it.

    ^Now or then?
    Did the ’pubs get confused and try to suppress the military vote in 2012?

    As a veteran of “combat arms”, I also salute those in the State Dept., Peace Corps, and others in government, or NGOs (like Doctors Without Borders) who serve the effort at PEACE in the world, not just wars. Remember, even our military state: “PEACE is our profession”. If only our political “chickenhawks” could respect,honor, and defend that resolve.

    ‘Judges and lawyers protect our rights. The Military protect our “interests.’

    @lonecat ‘Support for the military should not have to mean support for militarism’

    Well said, both.

    I just wanna say that i get the purpose of today.
    However, I do think the focus on soliders as the lone potector of our rights is misleading. Every person who votes does act to protect it. Or undermine it if it is based on the type of nonsense that Fox and MSNBC spew out.
    In fact, the voter may be more responsible for the protection or loss of our rights than anyone else.
