So this Army Recruiter calls my house last nite.....

and wants to speak with my step-son, a high school senior. Appreciating that Veterans Day just passed, I wanted to remain polite and told him we don't want our son to become "property" of the Government. He then says, 'our country is going thru some tuff times now, and perhaps the newly elected President will make things better'. I gather my wits and reply 'look---you're talking to someone who voted for Ron Paul'. Then....he says "SO DID I .... I just have to remain respectfull of a Commander in Chief". After some discussion, and recalling that RP received the MOST donations from the military of any other candidate....it just gives me some hope that our military won't turn on other Americans.

Good news

It is hopeful to hear that this person was for Ron Paul. Eventually, I think we may depend on our military and police to stand with us.

END the FED before it ENDS US

i'm a veteran that got out 2 1/2 years ago

i informed on Veterans Day that my cousin joined the Marine Corp. he's on my Myspace, but didn't put out that information. so i went and checked his profile. sure enough there's all this "i want to give back to my country" bullshit. my brother, who is a marine till next month, tried to tell him it sucks. but my cousin chose not to listen. i wish he would have talked to me because i would have explained to him how much damage he is doing to his country by joining.

he'll be 32 when he gets out. the same age i was when i was lucky enough to get out alive. he has no idea the suffering he's in for

I am telling all my military friends that they have a choice.

I am handling them with kids-gloves. But I may be beginning to bring the ship around with them.

You handled that well--

We need to reach out to the military politely at all times.

Yeah or it will be our head on a platter =(

You should

Have kindly reminded him he did'nt have to follow illegal orders from a war criminal. I feel for him and all service men and women in these times. Even the ones who think what these wars are just.

He does have to follow

He does have to follow illegal orders from a war criminal or spend his life in the brig. Not until discontent reaches critical mass in the military will one be able to defy them.

Actually, the UCMJ punishes those who follow unlawful orders.
