prober, makes some good points. I could add that getting wounded or killed makes one a victim, not a hero. It's small compensation to receive extra points on a job application while receiving inadequate care for trauma suffered while in service.

You see, it is bad when you kill someone on your own, and not wearing a uniform. It is GOOD to kill when you wear a uniform, and are under a General's orders. Yah? But if you just do a job, a career, and never ever kill anyone with a weapon, you are just a regular, non-hero. A less than veteran. Just someone who was in the military and not very important. It is the people on the combat field, that make the difference, the ones that are TRUE American heros, Right? REAL vets. Not the ones that sit behind a desk, doing tying or charts and graphs, or issuing uniforms, or fixing Humv's. Those "Vets" are the workerbees, the people that do nothing, compared to the REAL vets that kill. Right?

Here we go, the combat veteran, the war veteran, the veteran that put their life in danger. We "other" as in forgotten veterans hear this all the time, and never ever get noticed, or even listened to, because we are not true American heroes. The average everyday vet that supported wars in places like Germany, or the US, never get anything other than a retirement or a shake of the hand and a certificate. "Thanks for your service! You get no preference points on any state exams because you didn't kill anyone!" Shafted again for 22 years of service to the country. For what? Nothing.
