First, thank you for recognizing our service members.

I'm very familiar w/ the sentiments expressed by the female passenger. (she is no "lady") As a V-N vet, it was common place for the anti-military folks to take out there anger where it did the least good: on the servicemen.

I opposed the Iraq War & believe we should have been out of Afghanistan about 10 years ago.

In that respect, I could be considered (mistakenly) as being "anti-military".

I spent 3 years active duty & 21 in the reserves, all of it in Special Forces. I am by no means "anti-military". What I do have, as do many others in this country, both in the military & as civilians, is the good sense to recognize that the US Congress and the Executive branch got us in a war that we did not need to be in. (Iraq) And, they got us in one that needed to happen (Afghanistan) and did not have the good sense to get out when we had clearly won.

And at no time did the troops shirk their duty under the Constitution. They did exactly what they were ordered to do and did it well.

Soldiers do not get to pick their wars. Congress does. Therein lays the problem.

Hear hear!

The lady needed to be directed to the idea that she herself has all the power in what the US war machine does and it's soldiers that preserve that power for her.

I suppose you didn't have time for that... Rush ? I didn't understand the connection Rush the band, the movie or the drug ?

As a USAF V-N vet I can only surmise that she was a tree hugger coming from a convention and didn"t get all the splinters removed before her flight. Salute to you, Ed. Well done!
