This is sad but true. Only 2 percent of all people 18 & older have served in the US military. I would like to thank, all of you who are serving now, and all that have served in the past, my brother's in arms.
This is really sad, that only 2 percent have or they are served to protect our country's freedoms. I understand, if you could not serve because, of medical problems or you are the last living son in your family. The military is tough on the body. This means that about 95 percent of the poeple have no reason way they can not serve. I'm giving 3 percent of the people the reason I listed above for not having served, which is perfectly ok.
So, you have all of these people that could have served but, would not for some reason complaining about they freedoms. They will not stand up for themself but, they want someone else to do the fighting for them. So, they can stay back home and enjoy all of the freedom's. The one's that have the balls or are poor or went in to get money to help with school, the military was they only choose. That so few have to carry this country on they back's. Would like to hear what the rest of you guys and gals think about this.
