But many of the universities today teach the young Americans that we (veterans) were the bad guys.

That's why ROTC had to be removed from colleges - too likely you'll get a rational opposing point of view. Can't allow the young adults of America to possibly make up their own minds after being given all the facts...they might not become liberal and vote Democrat!

Yeah, I cried. "I fought for you and I'd do it again." Damn. After what he had been through..........he'd do it again? That says a lot.

I don't know any schools that teach our military are "the bad guys". Around these parts, the military is very revered. Locutus, where do you get your information that some universities teach the military is the bad guy?

Also, as an aside and for my own knowledge, I thought those that never served in the military are not supposed to salute. I thought that was reserved solely for those who have served. Whenever I am at a parade or ceremony where military pass by me, I call out a thank you to them. Particularly the Vietnam era men and women. and then I wipe a tear or two. I would like to salute them but I thought that would be wrong since I never was in the military. Can anyone educate me on this?

I must be dead...

I'm not a supporting member of this site so i have to watch what i say so this thread isn't moved.

It isn't that i don't care about our vets,I go out of my way in defence and support of them.

Regardless of good or bad I'm not a fan of "emotional advertisement"

If you have never served then saluting is replaced by the had over the heart. Also military personnel are not supposed to salute outside of uniform they are also supposed to place their had over there heart. As far as the old veterans they can do what they want in my opinion.

Couldn't see the video on my phone. I would have fought in Iraq, but my platoon SGT who I'll call Lopez, had other ideas...

The rules in my world say anyone who served can salute........in or out of uniform. LOL I will remember for me it's hand over heart. All military are my heroes but particularly the Vietnam Vets.
