    If I want to know what my country really thinks of me and my service, rather than read people's opinions here on DK I can just pull out the citations and read them

      little. I'll admit that too many of the diarists I complain of are just following the lead of a lazy to incompetent MSM. But, as noted elsewhere in the thread, I can't HR WaPo or the other papers who are far too quick to pick up this sort of story, or the hostage taker from GA, for example, and run with the "crazy veteran with a gun" meme as well as all manner of ill informed speculation about PTSD.

      That ill informed speculation hurts real people in real life.

      I can, however, employ my five per day to do whatever little I can to clean up our little corner of the Universe.

        I got over the nasty coments a long time ago, like 40 years ago. You can see how that attitude is still alive. Some people will never get it.

        I think its an  intersting comment on how anyone who says soldiers were spit on will probably get HRd but you can see  people with that  same kind of  kind of attitude right here.
