I have never been in the military and while I thought at times of joining there was often the issue of being sent to someplace that I feel we don’t belong. It has nothing to do with being a “do gooder” and everything to do with maintaining the high ground.
I would point out http://www.marines.com/main/index/making_marines/culture/traditions/core_values to make my case. Note the first core value listed it honor and yet what these soldiers did had nothing to do with honor. Instead it brought dishonor to themselves, the corp that trained them and the nation that sent them.

What I get sick of is the people who claim to have stood in the front line of rights defense while diminishing and demeaning the voice of the people they claimed to have preserved the free speech of.
