Damn The Military! What The Heck Do They Matter?

As the son of a West Point graduate who was a highly decorated combat veteran and a POW of the Nazis, I’m often mystified at the rank hatred expressed by some people towards those in uniform. Who knows? Maybe those haters staged anti-war demonstrations in the 60’s and 70’s, or maybe they built bombs or lit fires.

But for someone who has five family members buried at Arlington, it just rankles when I see the viciousness of those who’ll deny any acknowledgement to the men and women who spend their lives protecting the rest of us.

Our latest story comes from the Frenchman’s Creek Homeowners Association in Lafayette, Louisiana.

A military family put up a Welcome Home sign for their son,  Anthony Marsiglia, who’s in the Navy. The HOA lawyer told them, “Nope! Not without severe restrictions.” And now they’ve been ordered into mediation.

Other military families who’ve put up yellow ribbons in support of Marsiglia had them quickly torn down.

Can you imagine if this kind of thing had happened in WWII?

Yep, damn those military creeps. They’re just a bunch of brain-dead losers anyway.
