Ah...
...whatever you say...

Get ready for a lecture from Slob, Sticks, Zane, or someone else...
...I would write a response to that...but I'd rather just sit here and shake my head slowly as I re-read your post

Cool show on the Military Channel about this. In the helicopter they had: a mounted M60 MG.
I believe it was a FN M240, M60's are most;y used now in their MK43 variant since the 240 has pretty much replaced the full size "Pig". But yeah anyway the Military Channel rocks!

Very good points though, i love all our men and women who serve and have served in our military and i can say they really are my only heroes that i look up to. It pains me a lot when i see and hear people talk bad about them. One of my closest friends is a Marine and even before shipping out to Iraq was called baby killer once or twice. I understand they have a right of free speech, but for the love of Don't use the Lord's name in vain. people show at least some respect for those that defend that freedom.

@Durkee
There are only four branches of the military. Coast Guard, Army, Air Force, and Navy. The Marine Corps is a Department of the Navy (often said to be the men's department, haha)

Do correct me if I'm wrong, but there are 7 uniformed branches of service in the United States:

-U.S. Army
-U.S. Marine Corps
-U.S. Navy
-U.S. Air Force
-U.S. Coast Guard
-U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
-NOAA Commissioned Corps

Of those...the Department of Defense recognizes 5 military branches:

-U.S. Army
-U.S. Marine Corps
-U.S. Navy
-U.S. Air Force
-U.S. Coast Guard

The Marine Corps is part of the Department of Defense and Department of the Navy...but they are regarded as a seperate branch.
You of all people should know that Razz

No, I realize they are regarded as a seperate branch, just wanted to put it out there that they are not an actual seperate branch. They are still part of the Navy.

It was the beginning of the first Gulf War when I witnessed a group of people lighting up our flag. A kid across the street broke into a run and hit the first of the demonstrators as he plowed into the group. (10-15 people) He stomped out the flag, threw it over his neck and fought his way out. On the other side of the street, where I was standing were also two Uniformed Police Officers. The kid ran down the street a bit, then stopped and turned back to the cops as if to turn himself in.
As if all of this wasn't enough - the first of the two officers turned around and looked up at the building, as if he didn't see anything. The second one made a small golf clap at the kid before turning at looking at the same building. Meanwhile the protesters cried and whined about being assaulted.

These are the kinds of stories that warm my heart and re-light my faith for this country, when It needs to be picked up. I love it.

There is no law against burning our nations flag and what that guy did could easily have gotten him slapped with an assault charge even with the two officers standing there. That said, i probably would of done the exact same thing to save our flag.

I think this falls under the old saying.."I might disagree with every word you say, but unto my last breath I will defend your right to say it."

Think of it this way...it's one of the things that sets the US apart, you can say pretty much what you want without fear of retribution, perhaps not the best thing always..but I tend to think it's for the best to have the right.

Come to think of it, burning a flag is the only way to properly dispose of it. You can't just throw an old flag in the trash. The really bad thing to do is let it touch the ground (or stomp on it for that matter).
