Do you think that veterans deserve more respect and kindness than they receive?

  • Absolutely, yes, veterans earned and deserve every amount of respect and privaledge that this country offers, whether ignorant civilians like it or not!

    Liberals who whine that vets are no different than other people are just plain stupid and ignorant. Crybaby liberals who often are raise to hate the military are just upset that they can't land a decent job after their "liberal arts" college degree.

    Serving in the military requires much more intelligence, stamina, and critical thinking than your average "college educated liberal arts" major working at Starbucks.

    They often blame veterans for wars started by politicians when their only form of combat is on a laptop computer in the safety of their mommy and daddy's basement.

    US servicemen absolutely are entitled to all the respect and priviledges that America pays them and if any liberal, or anyone feel otherwise that's THEIR problem, and their own insecurities to deal with!

    Without US servicemen,(who volunteer to be in harm's way) we would be attacked by every other country, forcing EVERYONE (whether you like the military or not) to be forced into defending this country.

    Liberal idiotcy was defeated in the US presidential election and their outrage shows a lot about their lack of intelligence and maturity levels on every level.

  • You guys are childish and im only 16 X3 And yes

    For i want to say a few things, I think yes. For they fought for our freedom and knew what they could lose. They knew they where going to probably die and lose friends. Many died many seen things and done things they regret seeing or doing. Killing children because they had to so they could save many more. After all that they come back and get treated like crap. Being called killers murderer's and worst of all homeless and spat on. Its really sad that they go through all of that to make America happy then American's just treat them like total shit.

  • Yes i think

  • Veterans' civil- Now

    Respect is what Veterans have given civilians for USA safety. Veterans through history mostly didn't have a choice to go and serve. Civillians should respect and appreciate our USA troops, past and present. Despite the loss and misunderstanding of war. Respectfully educating our future about non civillian life needs attention.

  • They sacrificed themselves.

    They are so kind and giving for giving up their lives for us. Without them none of us would be here.They are so kind and giving for giving up their lives for us.

  • DUHDUHDUH I MEAN THEY GIV EiTHER LIFE FOR US TO HAVE A BETTER ONE! I MEAN WITHOUT THEM WE WOULD BE LIVING VERY HARSHLY

    These veterans deserve a lot of respect because they leave their families and everything close to them to fight for their country, for the people, and only care to make life better for us. They are unselfish, and they are very risk taking and brave. I believe without them our life would definitely be different and hard.

  • Why are we even asking this kind of question?

    They have volunteered to protect the values of freedom, democracy and equal opportunity for all Americans to pursue their dreams and enjoy personal freedoms other countries don't have. Veterans are not respected enough even in their own home, the VA. I'm a Vet, and work at the VA, where there is constant resentment towards co-workers who are Vets. People think that we are dumb and only got our jobs because of our Vet status. That's disgrace. So yes, the Vets deserve more respect, definitely.

  • They are just people.

    No, I do not think that veterans deserve more respect and kindness than they receive, because they are already given far too much benefit of the doubt. Any problem that a veteran ever has was caused by his time in the service. The rest of us are just supposed to tolerate them being drunks just because they used to be in the army. Maybe they would have been drunks either way.

  • They could deserve it

    Theyll deserve more respect in my eyes once they actually start respecting all the people in society they look down on with contempt for not being in the military or america. I could throw a bunch of money into officers training and instantly gain 1/3 of the militarys respect without earning it. They might not like me but just because im military now they suddenly have to and they hold everyone else to that starndard which is complete bullshit. I own a gun to protect myself dont push some form of social debt on me because you signed you life away to be told by the government how to live and think thats why i pay taxes.

  • They made a choice.

    With no regard for the people who could be murdered at their hands, they made a career choice. At best this choice was made through ignorance and naivety, but even in such cases the choice still shows a callous and selfish disregard for the 'enemy', and has caused death and suffering. At best a soldier is dangerous and stupid.

  • Not todays Soldiers

    Why do you think people would want to terrorize our country? Because we've been bombing theirs for decades. When will we stop bombing them? When young men and women can't be convinced to invade other nations as though we will actually benefit from it. I'm sorry for how it may have effected them but if it were up to me they wouldn't have gone... I tire of the "I'm fighting for you" argument...

  • They are no different from others

    Aside from the fact that they think they are entitled to everything just because they signed up for army. Most wars they participate in are not legit, they are used as pawns by governments. Forget about "bringing democracy to other countries" thingy and start thinking. You are being used. So you either get smarter and quit (do something else) or you just deserve what you have and do not deserve to be treated differently - you just another loser...

  • Veterans have NO valid right to respect, nor a right to anyone's property because of their "service".

    Veterans CHOSE to put their lives at risk by enlisting in the armed forces. Even in the case of mandatory conscription (a feature of a dictatorship that has NO proper place in a free society), they CHOSE to comply with the mandate, enlist, and assume that risk, instead of evading the draft, as they would have a right to do, based upon their right to self-ownership and personal liberty; therefore, no one owes veterans money, or goods and services because they "fought in defense of our lives and our freedom". Unless you personally contracted with a soldier to defend YOUR life and freedom and those of your loved ones--and voluntarily paid for that protection entirely out of your own resources--that soldier did no such thing ! Veterans have no valid right to other people's property because of their "service" or their "needs" because people are not slaves to veterans, just as they are not slaves to government. Moreover, given that the US military has been used for decades to impose and murderously enforce a hegemonic foreign policy by placing "boots on the ground" in over 100 countries, military "service" is fraught with such moral hazards as should persuade anyone committed to peace and individual liberty and legitimate individual rights not to engage in it in any way. Let all of those in foreign lands fight on their own, and at their own expense and risk, to rid themselves of tyrants, and pursue whatever lifestyle and culture they choose, bearing the full consequences of those choices for good or ill on their own lives and property. If any American wants to "suit up" and "play cop and warrior" anyplace on this earth, let him/her do so entirely at his/her own risk and expense, and not be so arrogant upon his/her return home to demand respect and loot from anyone !

  • Certainly not; it's just another job and not a respectable one either.

    It's just another job and not a particularly good or moral one either. They get paid to go to another county, in today's case a country that likely poses no threat whatsoever to national security and kill a bunch of poorly equipped people and a lot of civilians through collateral damage at the whim of politicians with an underlying agenda. I also get the impression that a majority of these "vets" aren't particularly bright people with good prospects in life. Not everyone can get a top education and hold a good job. Almost anyone on the other hand can be either cannon fodder or shoot at people unquestionably because their superiors order them to. Of course situations such as WWII where people are conscripted and have a reason to go to war are different. Today's vets on the other hand; defending "freedom?" Oh please, spare me the mindless BS and treat everyone you come across with a bit of decency instead.
