I was drafted in 1966. I accepted that as part of life. I went “to places I didn’t want to go”” I didn’t think we should have been there but…I went. I did things I’m not proud of….but I went. The thanks I get is being able to say I did my part for God and country and my fellow man. People that were never in the military can never understand that.I stand proud I was a soldier and my son stands proud as a marine.
The act the marines committed,while not necessarily nice is by far a lot less than barbaric. These guys will live with a lot more on their minds than p*&&^%$ on dead people. People that express horror at this don’t have a clue,period. They only have an opinion.
Mike, you are correct as far as I’m concerned. It seems to work fine for Ishreal where no one is exempt.
