    My ex-husband served over 26 years in the US Army, Airborne HOOAH... retired Master SGT now (we are still friends). He did several overseas tours, 2 tours in Iraq, was there in 2004 Fallujah with the Marines (Semper Fi).

    I know what you all go through, the military stress, the strain on your personal life, the not knowing where to go next and once you are there, not knowing what comes tomorrow. However, you are always ready to do what must be done.

    I admire you for all you do. Hats off to everyone who is there to protect our country, to protect our borders. You do a job that's worth doing, that is necessary. I'm proud of you all! My thoughts are with you and your families!

    As to the person who is asking why these people are proud... they should be, they are the ones who dare to take on a difficult job. They do not start wars, but they are the ones on the front line, to defend your right to be free to ask such questions. They are the true heroes!

    I'd love it if everyone completely and utterly ignored the trolls on this post, and went ahead and just answered the OP.

    That must be nice. I talked to a lot of contractors overseas who told me approximately what they make annually and it made me cry inside.

    my opinion is just based on being in the US military...
    the simple answer is that they put themselves in harms way to protect what many take for granted. I personally anyone serving in the military should be very proud of what they do. Going on deployments is no joke especially for those with family waiting for them back home. Sure our military is voluntary but if it weren't for the brave men and women that are volunteering then the government would be forced to implement a draft to ensure we had the numbers required to protect this great nation.

    war may be the scourge on the world but to think that world peace is possible is like believing in the easter bunny, the possibility of ending world hunger, or what i like the best...getting rid of terrorism. All of this is a pipe dream and to believe otherwise is to be living in a fairytale.

    Just want to say thank you to all active and ex military. Many people take you for granted, but not everyone. Stay proud.
