No hero here either....sitting in a darkened compartment on a ship watching radar is about the least heroic thing I can think of.
And to piss off any military hating DUmmys that might be lurking, I think this is an appropriate place to post this....

This is one of my favorites. Not really related to this thread, but it is in a way. And they were angels.

Here's another DUmmie pisser-offer:
God Bless Our Military.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

I believe you articulated the majority opinion very well. I know you did mine. I'm retired now and proud of my service. I don't feel like a hero and have no delusions of grandeur. I simply did what I loved to do for 26 years. Unlike the pathetic 30 somethings that still wear their High School letter jackets, I put the uniform away and am moving on to the next adventure.
I appreciate all those that make kind remarks and the genuine appreciation that they are attempting to share. I simply reply that "I'm no hero, but thank you, you're welcome, or that was very kind of you."
Liberal turds that don't understand these feelings get a less kind response. Liberals rarely if ever (except in their fevered brains), make anti-military statements in person. They usually run to mommy's basement and put on their liberal tough guy uniforms (tighty-whities), and post of their imagined heroics to their favorite echo chambers.
I spent a quiet Memorial Day remembering my comrades that did not come home from aircraft accidents and shoot downs. They deserve at least a few moments of my time on one day a year.
For all of them; Thanks guys, you mattered.Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Thanks to all here who are currently serving or who have served in the past.
Ody, I love your term "belligerent pacifist". It seems like one really shouldn't call himself a pacifist if he is also belligerent.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Military people can say they aren't heroes. Everyone else who doesn't think so can STFU as far as I'm concerned.
