I was reading this thread yesterday, ProudDad is one man I would LOVE to meet in a nice dark alley and show him just what I was trained to do as a US Marine.

There are a few other posters in that thread that just made me shake my head in amazement that some people are like that.

On a serious note, the OP doesn't seem to recognize his own prejudicial tendencies towards military folks. If the OP had been describing this reaction to a street thug with a tanned hue, he would have been disgusted with himself and never have even posted that thread. However, he didn't seem to have any hesitation admitting his prejudicial feelings towards someone in uniform, expecting approval from his peers. I'm glad to see he was not validated overall.

Wish I could get that pic of me back on the boat and post it (damn work filters).

I know what you mean.  Was trying to get a recent picture of me up into Photobucket today, and it just wouldn't play nice.

My problem is I can't get into photobucket from work.

Oh, I agree! :D

There's an Army post in Savannah.  Lots of handsome men in their uniforms!  Jackpot!    :rotf:    I see quite a few of them on the AASU campus, attending classes.

Make sure that they have a little black rifle surrounded by black wreaths on their left chest.

On ACUs? It's, more than likely, Hunter Army Airfield, the home of the 1st Bat, 75th Ranger Reg't that she's talking about. Stewart is a little ways from Savannah.

Yep...  Hunter Army Airfield is mere miles from my college.

I am out of Stewart, so I have a good clue who it could be, but it is more than likely people who don't do shit from either base. So, she should be on the lookout for CIB's.

That's bullshit...there are plenty of guys who "do shit" who are not eligible for a CIB.

You know I said it as a joke, but if you want to get all mad about it, this isn't the place and I'm not the person.

And if this was a military board I may have taken it as a joke once I knew you better...but since it was made in front of primarily civilians I didn't find it so humorous. So on at least one point you are correct..this isn't the place.

As to whether you're the person or not shouldn't make any difference.

Don't know if this helps any of you, but I can't seem to get my pictures to upload to photobucket through Firefox.  I go over to IE to upload.

Not much I can add to this thread that hasn't be said already.

BEG nailed it. They're very selective about whom they support in uniform. For this country? Hate. Against this country? I.e., Castro and the Venezuelan Chipmunk? Adoration.

Armstrong. :)

Dang girl...wish I'd known you were there.  I'd have found a way to have bought you a beer when I was there back in November.

Went to my old stomping ground (Bayou Blues Cafe)...place hadn't changed in 10 years.
