  •  Yes, let us not forget the Pat Tillman story. (6+ / 0-)

    I was just explaining it to a young person recently.

    •  So...one assumes that you also explained the (0+ / 0-)

      friendly fire too.
      Unfortunately for me, I have experienced the reality of combat first hand. Lots of it. Now I(and those closest to me),
      live with the lingering effects many years later.

      The political fiasco that has developed around Bowe Bergdahl
      is truely disgusting. Should he have been in the armed forces
      to begin with ? In my opinion, no. A combat arms branch ?
      Definately not.

      Does his mental state excuse his walking away ? I am afraid
      I don't know the answer but I think he should be held accountable for his strolling away. Others depended on him to be there and he did leave.

      As to the "thumb in the eye of the Libertarian Right" ,
      as far as I'm concerned, it couldn't happen to a bunch of nicer guys. Idiots actually.
