    Stay civilian. I was in (during Vietnam). It sucked.

    …when i first got to viet nam
    hardly had time to see saigon
    ‘fore they shaped us up and called the roll
    and sent us out on long patrol
    .
    swattin’ flies
    swappin’ lies
    firin’ the odd shot here and there…

    My daughter is a major. She says being an officer insulated her from some of the things noncoms faced.
    However, whenever I hear about these stories, I think of this song.

    Our sisters, daughters, and mothers who are serving their country deserve respect, civility, and the protection of their brothers in arms.
    There has been postings on this topic from folks who seem to believe it is the women’s fault for signing up to serve. I find that idea vulgar and out of touch with life in the 2000s. This strange form of Christian “Sharia law” that wants women to “stay in their place” has not place in our republic.
    Fox News recently had a small civil war when some of the males on the show, including one of their token liberals, bemoaned the fact that women, particularly single women, are now the primary earner for households. Greta and a few other ladies found that attitude archaic and wrong.
    I agree. In a civil society, we all work together to help EVERYONE succeed.
    That said – I know many women who would love to stay home to care for their children and homes but because husbands are absent, unemployed, or underemployed, the women must also work or the family will do without everything from healthy food to actual places to live.
    It is the duty of all Americans to protect those who cannot protect themselves, it is recognized in the Constitution when it says we do these things for “the common good…”
    Respectfully,

    I know several ladies in our military who would be glad to show you how they can “break things”.

    “So now, the important thing in the Military is not how to kill people and break things…….It’s how to pamper the new little darlings so they feel important and needed.”

    No. The first and foremost thing in the military is to instill discipline and sense self control into the troops. Is it that difficult of a concept for you to understand?

    Well said, as usual.

    @onguard

    So you approve of a military that rapes women? That was one of the things that distinguished US troops from others in previous wars: that we didn’t use rape as a weapon, let alone on our OWN TROOPS.

    @onguard

    You do not believe in equal right for woman, do you, og ??
    That a woman should NOT serve in our military…as she is a frail and weak member of the human species…..is that it, og ?
    Ever hear of Joan of Arc ??
    And, down thru history, there are many more woman in the military…now, finally for most, it is accepted…

    Tho there are plenty of examples in Japan Viet Nam, France, Germany, etc. where individual soldiers (quite a few) did rape and pillage. {and many when caught, were brought up on charges}

    Cannot be read slow enough to make sense.

    But who’d have pot in Viet Nam?

    @onguard Maybe if you explained yourself better you wouldn’t have to ask people to read your poorly written junk over and over.

    Reading comprehension cannot overcome another’s inability for writing coherently.
