Since you can't resist knocking the US government at your every turn, tell me , what branch of military service did you serve?

Mine was USMC 1969-73.

I never served, so I never had the opportunity to either fight like John Murtha or even dodge combat like our President.

In all honesty, however, thank you for serving. Marines mean business.

I would imagine you're a bit miffed about your brothers in arms sleeping in their own urine in the privatized heaven of Walter Reed. Veterans are not just disposable parts. When you pay the price so many servicemen are paying, you deserve to be taken care of by your nation.

Regardless, again, thank you for serving. It's you and other vets who allow fellow American citizens like myself to speak freely and live freely. It would be awful to live in a military dictatorship where only those who served could voice an opinion.

John Murtha, like John Kerry, has sidestepped the release of his service records (DD-214)

Our combat veterans receive better treatment than those of any other military in history, despite the propaganda that the far-left is spreading. It isn't perfect. Nothing ever is.

It obviously galls you that President Bush served honorably and was discharged as such. And whether or not you like him, he is Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, just as was President Clinton, a man who had a deep dislike and resentment for the military, a dislike which he expressed on many occasions.

William K. Wolfrum,

Since you haven't served in the military, that accounts for some misconceptions that you have about the armed services. Please allow me to enlighten you.

Of all the persons who have ever served, only about 10% have ever been put under enemy fire or assaulted the enemy in armed combat, if that is your definition of "fighting."

The remaining 90% are support personnel, such as supply, ordnance, engineers.vehicle maintenance, etc. Although these troops can come under enemy fire, they are not combat troops as such. ALL troops in the combat arms, which are Infantry, Artillery and Armor are volunteers for these assignments. No women are in these units. These definitions apply only to ground troops in the Army or Marines.

There is no such thing as "dodging" combat without being subject to a general courts martial.

President Bush was a pilot in a Texas Air Guard unit. Had his unit been nationalized and sent into an area where air strikes and combat sorties had been ordered, and Bush had refused to fly his mission, he would have been subject to the aforementioned courts martial, convicted, relieved of his commission and probably imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth.

Nothing of the sort ever happened, no matter how the convoluted left-wing kooks trumpet it.
