Count me out -- with our current leadership (politically and millitarily) - not a chance. If I needed a way out -- canada does not look very promising either - Mexico would be amuch safer option. Before anyone labels me a coward let me say for the record - If a civil war were to break out i would be in the middle of it , but I do not blindly follow orders.

In the USA the reality is that less than 1% of the entire population serve in the military so my guess is not many.

I'd be more worried how many military people would stand to orders given them if they had to face off with the country's civilians !

Way too many young men fed into the meat grinder for no good reason. If our country was attacked today I'd fight like a mad man. Otherwise, I'm out.

I refuse to even think about that kind of hypothetical crap. The decision was tough enough back then. With the leadership today....

Like I said, I refuse to even think about it.

Well over the age of being able to hump to far to fast and if to do it to fight for an ungrateful nation sorry but if it comes here Locked and Loaded with enough to supply s squad for an extended go at it. But as said above need to flush the crap out of the crap hole in DC first, which unfortunately probably includes many of the REMF'ers

These should bring back some memories

We the unwilling
Lead by the unknowing
Doing the unnecessary
For the ungrateful
Have done so much for so long
With so little
We can do anything with nothing
FOREVER

Fighting for Peace in Viet Nam
is like
for virginity


The job of a Patriot is not to protect his country but to protect the people from the tryannical government

Nope not unless they are within the US. Our leadership and the fact they won't let the military fight and win with total war us well bs.

In the last week I'm starting to be concerned I might really have to be checked out for MS. Thought it was just a spin issue with the pain in my back the will drop me to my knees and my numb leg and tingling foot. But today feeding the bees I got dizzy and almost fell over. So I'm not sir how much longer I'm going to be useful. Scary to actually admit that for the first time.

I wouldn't touch this thread with a 10 foot pole, HOWEVER, I will say 2 things: If my country needed me, I would be there. #2: The men that DID go and serve (anytime, anywhere) will always get a tip of my hat and have a seat at my table.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Suppose to go there for three weeks next month on a tour of VN and Cambodia. May get cancelled because of illness of a key member in our group.
