Looks like there is no lack of support here. I can tell you I have a marine and an airman who appreciate your thoughts, add (their cousin, my nephew) a Seal and my young friend from the army and rest assured they appreciate all of your thoughts.

Hey, I did twenty years Air Force, but I never had the guts these troops have!

I'll stand with you all..behind...or in front of any of these troops!!! I suspect every little bit helps!

Thank God for todays "all volunteer" GI's. There are none better. I know this isn't the forum for political discussion, but I dispair when I see the national media and remember the 60's and 70's.

For all of you reading this who have served our country in any capacity, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Without you, our lives here in America would be VERY different.

Never served, but have always appreciated those who did. Visited the wall in DC and found the name of a close friend. My dad was a quad fifty gunner in WWII off rail platforms. Unfortunately the Army didn’t have any and they sent him to the Pacific. No railroads. He was lucky for most of the war, but was with the troops that went into the concentration camps at the end of the war. Changed him forever.

Also had one uncle that flew B17s out of England, O1 Birddogs in Korea, jet fighters in the cold war, and evac choppers in Vietnam. DFC, two Bronze Stars, and others too numerous to mention. Another who flew P51s in WWII and F86s in Korea. Another who we are not really sure what he did in WWII. He always liked solving puzzles. Kind of a quiet gentle soul. All we really know is there is a Purple Heart and a Silver Star in his foot locker, that I have. Oh, and he was OSS.

I wish all our troops were home. I wish we didn’t need them. But we do, and I really appreciate their sacrifices.

Was a navy Corpsman in Vietnam, another one of those questionable endeavors. Right or wrong, it was our country and "my' men needed what I was trained to do. Nothing else mattered (certainly not the politicians nor their politics). Heard some nonsense when I got back but mostly appreciation, actually. These guys over in Iraq are ours, fighting and risking their lives, they belong to us. Anything else belongs to the politicians.

I missed this thread on the first go around. Thanks for bringing it back.
I enjoyed all of the comments, and appreciate the support I see displayed - in stark contrast to what we currently see and read in the media.
To each of you who have served in the military - I salute you. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice, and the sacrifice of family left behind when you leave them to serve.

As I watched the video clip, it struck me for the first time the emotional toll that the military folks must endure as they attend these funerals in war time. Watching family after family grieve, experience loss, confusion, "why me", "how will this affect our young children", etc. Some of that feeling of loss MUST be transferred to them. My hat is off to them as well.
Thank you to all who responded in this thread, I've enjoyed your thoughts and experiences.
