Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

Keep our great veterans in your thoughts this weekend. Because of them, you have a 3 day
weekend. Those in foreign countries, please do not forget, that many American soldiers
gave their lives to protect other countries.
The disrespect is shameful on this post. Every country has fallen soldiers.

@DogMan you have that many?

@Guitarman123 You're entitled to your opinion ,but your responses have nothing to do with the point of this post . How is it wrong to pay respects to a loved one that passed on ? Would you like people pissing on your mothers grave or calling you a fascist for laying flowers there ?

@kodiac I honestly couldn't care less

In the case of ww2 thanks but otherwise I feel nothing but pity for those forced or coerced into senseless warfare under the false pretense of defending freedom.
@Gloomy By the way, Dogman said [quote]I found what you needed to read that would show you the truth, but decided
it would be wasted on you. so I decided to just block you. Life is too short to be wasted
on the dull, and ignorant. bye bye.[/quote] Running away

@SW-User Gloomy, I told you I am happily married, sorry. Find someone else, if you can.

No country is perfect. But the free world knows, when the chips are down, they can count on
soldiers from Canada, UK, U.S. and many others, to come to their aid. My dad fought alongside
the Moroccan Mountain Infantry in Italy. Without brave men and women in the armed forces,
this planet would be run horribly, by horrible people. Much worse than we have now.

@DogMan Yemen thanks America and the uk for being allies with Saudi Arabia. Palestine Is thankful that America in particular is allies with Israel

@DogMan the world is thankfull for Bush getting bin ladens parents out of the country shortly after September 11

@DogMan Sadly now the nations you held up as heros are being run by horrible people who trample their people's rights. Hell Trudeau froze bank accounts and called in the UN police to stop a peaceful protest. The US is busy throwing people in jail for being in Washington DC on Jan 6. All of them forced their citizens to get injected with what is now known to be a mass killer. Maybe those brave soldiers you talk about should rise up and overthrow their own tyrannical governments.
I plan to celebrate, with reverence, every fallen U.S. soldier this weekend. There are several I keep in my heart everyday, especially the one who died while saving my dad in combat.
As a veteran, I appreciate your comment..

Not my problem millions of young men decided to throw their lives away for nothing. Fighting to keep the money in the elites’ pockets. ‘Freedom’. 🤪🤪🤪
Our country is the laughing stock of the planet.
Guitarman123 · 31-35, M
@Falakata spends over 800 billion dollars on the military whilst ignoring the fact that theirs over 600,000 homeless people
DogMan · M
@Falakata Our country? What country would that be? Certainly not the U.S. of A.

People come from around the world, just to walk a 1,000 miles to get to the USA.

People die just to try to come here. The only people that believe we are a laughing
stock, are jealous people, that are not brave enough to come here. You know, only
brave people come to America.

They must not know about the countries that you believe are better.

@DogMan I can’t tell if you’re serious or not but that shit’s funny
DogMan · M
A few people here are very sad individuals. They have no idea what what the military does,
or why they do it. Without the military, the world would be in utter chaos, with horrible
people doing horrible things to all. Barbarians would rule the world. Haters need not reply.
your opinions are naive and worthless to me, and only make me more secure in knowing
that I speak the truth. Because I have lived everything I speak of.
Guitarman123 · 31-35, M
@DogMan so as long as theirs less than 100 million people who are homeless in America everything is hunky dory?
Gloomy · F
@DogMan you don't protect the US or do you seriously think you did so in Afghanistan or Iraq?

@DogMan suppose it's easier than justifying pointless wars
DogMan · M
@Guitarman123 Whatever you say big guy. Your the boss.
Guitarman123 · 31-35, M
@DogMan don't forget to pledge allegiance to the flag like a good little nationalist
People who sacrifice for there country are soldiers on duty. I respect those who protect us and everyone day and night from any threat. Americans did play a major role in both world wars infact they had to pay to those who suffered from colonial rules. There is a deep explanation but I won't share it on this post. Hope you are doing well? 🙂

@kodiac Could you please email this to me? I will PM you.
kodiac · 22-25, M
@DogMan Your very welcome ,people want to argue politics but that's not what memorial day is about . It's about people that fought and died so those same people are able to speak freely even if i don't like what they say.
DogMan · M
@kodiac I agree, I don't know why I argue on line. I was hoping I would not find some of these
inconsiderate, naïve posts when I came back to town after the weekend. But I did expect it.
As you probably read, my dad was a combat riflemen in Italy. He witnessed, and participated
in horrible things, things that gave him nightmares off and on for his entire life. He passed
away at 84. Luckily, being the stoic man he was, the war did not effect his life, other than in
his dreams. I wrote a story about his time during WWII after he passed away. It's based
on 2 scrap books that I received, with every letter he wrote to his mom, and all of his military
documents. Let me know if you would like to read it, and I will email. It will be the most
accurate, and true story about WWII you will ever read. PS. I coerced a lot of stories out
of him after I went into the military.

Socialists and trade unionists did far more for regular people than army men who were sent to fight politicians battles
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
And lately a lot of American soldiers have been killed needlessly invading other countries.
