Well I hate the military. Really I do. Go ahead and yell at me, that’s fine. Have your oppinion. I have mine, and I know a lot of people have the opposite oppinion. So go ahead. But that’s just how it is.
It’s not that I hate the people in the military. The brave men and women who put their lives on the line for complete strangers. The people who value things like peace and their country higher than themselves. Those poeple are truly heros.
It’s more the institution of the military. The military that will only let Pte Goof talk to me for ten minutes at a time so we can never have a REAL conversation. And the military that doesn’t tell him if he has this weekend off or not. So I COULD be seeing him tomorrow, or not for weeks yet. I don’t know. And the military that makes him feel like all these things are more important than me. And our son.
