Thank you for your service. Can I offer that maybe she had to pick up her child from daycare or something like that? Thinking that way helps to de-stress your thinking. Regardless, thank you for fighting so that I don't have to face what you do.
I am completely ignorant about the war with America, Iraq... but how are you fighting for her freedom?
People really need to have respect. I guarantee that if it was the other foot, she would hate it and be complaining to someone about it. Viceads, that is a good way of thinking. Some daycares or other places don't allow lateness. I just think it could've been handled differently. But thank you for your service, you are an awesome human being!!!
I am always amazed at how entitled some servicemen seem to feel. They have a job with great benefits. There are not many other jobs that would pay their employee to go to school after they have stopped working, or for that matter many other jobs that pay employees a separate housing allowance and allow them not to pay taxes on food etc. With all the military discounts available and everything else, they should have enough, there's even a parade to celebrate them once a year, if glory is what they're after. What more do servicemen want? My fiance has been in the military for years with 3 deployments and I have never seen him act like he should be treated like he's more important than anybody else, I just don't get it.
Half the current conflicts the United States is involved with has zero to do with our freedom, but I know you have to tell yourself that to justify so many civillian casualties in other counties. If she's helping the troops, she's helping "freedom" too.
Yeah that is the reason you joined the army...to fight for freedom. Yeah right. I am so sick of service men automatically demanding respect when they joined for reasons only to benefit themselves.
Yesterday at work, my car battery died and I was pretty stressed out and in a big hurry to get it fixed. I'm sure that annoyed the car repair guys. But I was in a hurry to get to a funeral of my friend's brother, who killed himself. They didn't know that's why I was in a hurry to get out of there.
I thank you for serving our country, but please also recognize that everyone has their own personal stressors and obligations and not everything that doesn't go your way is all about insulting your honor.
