Who wants to FIGHT and maybe DIE to keep America safe?  Who?  Anybody want to serve up their son or daughter maybe?  C'mon now, step up.  Freedom isn't free!  I did my bit for 30 years in the military.  Where's your stomach for a fight?  President Trump is leading us to the battlefield.  Aren't you willing to fight for him and us?

I am betting that the people who post here are too old to serve, FAR too old for part of them. They're hoping that others will fight and die to indulge their arm chair warrior fantasies.

But they have sons and daughters and nieces and nephews who can fight.  This is no time for slackers.  President Trump needs support for the battle about to be waged to rid the world of Communists and Radical Muslims!!!!   We need them to FIGHT and maybe die for US!!!!!  Step up I say!  Step up!

I have two son's serving at this moment.  One in the Air Force and one in the Army.  My son in the Army is a field artillery tactical data system specialist, or something like that.  Longest damn MOS name I have ever seen...back on point.

No I do not want either of my son's to die for their country.  However they took an oath and I and everyone else should expect them to stand by it.

For those of you who served and ever saw combat you should know a couple of things.  The Marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen of this country, once deployed, do not fight and die for the country.  At that point they fight and die for each other, end of story.  So at the end of the day, it matters not to the ones at the point of the spear where they are sent or why.

Now that we are all safe an cozy at Camp Lazy Boy, Fort Hammock, Ocean View Naval Station and BBQ Air Force Base, we have the luxury of debating the how, why and when.  It's your right to do so.

Now directly to answer your question.  I would but as are most of you, I am not considered young enough.  I would not go to implement a policy that was given down by the government though.  I would go to stand shoulder to shoulder with my Corps and hope that I could play a part in making it possible for us to all see our families again.

These posts are really not constructive because I would bet that all of the vets here, regardless of current political leanings would feel the pull of brotherhood and gladly serve again if able, allowed and called upon, not for cause or policy, but the brotherhood.   I would hazard the assumption that all of us are also deeply honored by the service of current children and close family members that a serving in this moment.  I would also hazard the assumption that the man of us who have close family serving currently lose as many sleepless nights as I do.

So am I correct, you were too lazy to serve?

Absolutely and none of us have the privilege to choose to enlist in order to serve in a conflict.  20 years of relatively peaceful service, but in no way did that period meant that there were no dangers that each of us at times face to a variety of degrees.  Ask the sailors who's vessel was hit by a freighter, lives were lost.
