Semper Fidelis…not just some latin words

God Bless America

I write this in response to Salon magazine’s call for Americans to stop honoring men in uniform since America hasn’t really fought a war for freedom in seventy years. What a bunch of rubbish!

The men and women who put on military uniforms and fight wars for this country are to be honored not because their fight is necessarily just or honorable but because they take a pledge to fight and possibly die for this country. What is a country except its citizens? So they are in effect pledging to die for us all if they must. The left in this country has always gotten this wrong starting with their despicable behavior towards our Vietnam veterans when they came back from the jungles so long ago.  Something I’m sure many vets have never forgiven them for and rightly so.

Whether you agree with US foreign policy or not, is totally irrelevant. That is why we have free elections so that people who represent our values and beliefs are peacefully put in charge to determine for us who are enemies and who are friends are.  That is foreign policy. To blame the armed forces for the failure of foreign policy and hold them accountable is ridiculous.

We honor these brave men and women because they are agreeing to be a tool of US foreign policy- right or wrong. They have agreed to put on the uniform to keep us safe. They have agreed to surrender their individuality for a greater purpose. And they are necessary. To think otherwise is delusional.

Whether we agree who the enemies are is irrelevant from the standpoint of the serviceman.  They go where they are sent. They have agreed to be America’s tool, representing us all and risking it all.

Therefore it is that pledge of faithfulness and sacrifice that we honor, not the conflict however honorable or dishonorable it may be.
