Military Personnel And Criminals Are NOT The Same!

I had to come and share some nonsense that I read on the Internet. Some foolish individual actually tried to equate our military soldiers with common thugs on the street!! Uh, let me get this straight... On the one hand we have young men and women who CHOOSE to leave their families for extended periods of time to help protect the rights, freedom and way of life for this country that we all live in. On the other hand we have common criminals who take pleasure in robbing, stealing and causing mayhem for no good reason other than because they think they can. In what lifetime and what world is a
United States Soldier and a
criminal/thug with a gun
the same??
Maybe it's just me but I think the safety of our rights and our lives is a little more honorable than some dude with a gun trying to steal something from me. One has sworn to protect the United States of America while the other is just protecting himself. I am not saying that Military men (women) are perfect saints or that some of them don't have issues. But come on REALLY??? WHO WOULD YOU TRUST WITH YOUR LIFE?
This guy
or this guy?
By the way, yes the Military Man seen in these pictures is my son in whom I am extremely proud. So when you sit behind a computer and decide to talk trash about military people YES I take it personally! My son has a child, a family and a life that he is away from in order to help protect these United States! He is not out on some corner selling drugs or robbing banks and houses or randomly shooting innocent people. So, NO! MILITARY PERSONNEL IS NOT THE SAME AS THUGS AND CRIMINALS WITH LEGAL GUNS!

Yea, I take this a little personal. Do not mess with the mother of a Military Man!!
OK, Back to your regularly scheduled program!

What in the world? You already know my RESPONSE to this type of foolishness!


There are loads of stupid people in the world. You can tell who they are because they do a lot of talking before they turn their brains on.

What nonsense....sounds like the person who said that needs to have their head checked. Or maybe they could just go live for awhile in an area where the people are not protected by the military..but instead ruled by thugs.
I think they might just change their minds.
The other thing...I think what our military does involves sacrifice...a thugs actions? Selfishness.
I have a sweet friend who's husband will be leaving in a month for Iraq...he will be gone for over a year. He will miss the first steps of his son...and miss holding his three year old girl.
That is sacrifice. And I don't take for granted what he is doing or what your son is doing.
We are blessed!

Hey Regina! Thanks for stopping by my blog. As I said, that was my Very first ppp, so I really didn't know what I was doing. I kinda wonder if it was too long. I tend to ramble as you see. I too am appauled at what you found on the Internet. I think some people don't really know what they're talking about they just like to see they're opinion in print. I bet they would change their tune in they got "drafted" into the military like my generation did. I'm proud that we have a generation that enlist on their own. I was also proud of the draftees, because they all give it their all, and the bottom line is that "where would WE be without them. (Communism)? You go girl! You rule!

God Bless!

I know sometimes it is hard but you have to learn to ignore the ignorance.

But I know when it is your child it is tough to do.
