I have lots of questions concerning the motivation and legality of the "war" we are fighting and the way that I fear it will expand. Of course, I also question the way we have conducted the actions we have taken and their "resolution" since WWII.
I know a lot of patriotic young men and women joined the military after 911. Sadly, it was done without long thought about what it could mean..........what that choice might require of them. I am not retired military, just a widow of a career soldier who died on active duty in 83. I saw a lot of young folks, male and female enlist and then decide they made a poor choice for themselves when they were asked to function in a manner that would be distasteful as a civilian.
I support this man's position but I believe it is one that should be maintained and acted upon as a civilain. If he is willing to take this position, refuse to go and take the consequences, that is his business. For me, the bottom line is that one should think long and hard about what may be expected/demanded of one before joining. This is the case with any prospective career. The military is incorrect for many.
Just some thoughts and best wishes to all.
