Vacation Blogging

Anna was right, we’re in Washington, D.C. Going to the WRAMC FReep this evening to support our Warriors. While we’re there here’s a little something to read.
Found this at Aussie Chic’s blog…hope she doesn’t find out I stole it…she might kick my ass! đŸ˜‰

Dear Civilians...

"We know that the current state of affairs in our great
nation have many civilians up in arms and excited to join
the military. For those of you who can't join, you can
still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we
would like your assistance:

(1) The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat)
during the playing of the National Anthem---kick their ass.

(2) When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American
Flag in protest---kick their ass.

(3) Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay
the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see
anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how
these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every
second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans
made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a
disabled veteran kicks their ass.

(4) (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend
that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs), telling
others that you used to be "Special Forces," and collecting
GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven
years old. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your
ass kicked.

(5) Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask
them, "Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a
pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are

(6) If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard
'non-military', inform them of their mistake---and kick
their ass.

(7) Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a
parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by
placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military
member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her---of course,
failure to do either of those could earn you a severe

(8) Don't try to discuss politics with a military member
or a veteran.. We are Americans, and we all bleed the same,
regardless of our party affiliation. Our Chain of Command
is to include our Commander-In-Chief (CinC). The President
(for those who didn't know) is our CinC regardless of
political party. We have no inside track on what happens
inside those big important buildings where all those
representatives meet. All we know is that when those
civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call
upon the military to go straighten it out. If you keep
asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get
your ass kicked!

(9) 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to
me---stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a
vet and therefore, could kick your ass!

(10) Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop
saying 'Let's go kill those Commies!' And stop asking us
where he is! Crystal balls are not standard issue in the
military. That reminds me---if you see anyone calling those
damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I can go kick
their ass.

(11) 'Flyboy' (Air Force), 'Jarhead' (Marines), 'Grunt' (
Army), 'Squid'(Navy), 'Puddle Jumpers' (Coast Guard), etc.,
are terms of endearment we use describing each other.
Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned
the right to use them. That could get your ass kicked.

(12) Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member
of the military, support our troops and their families.
Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with
family and friends, please remember that there are literally
thousands of sailors and troops far from home wishing they
could be with their families. Thank God for our military and
the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our country
would get its ass kicked."

"It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the
freedom of the press.
"It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the
freedom of speech.
"It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us
the freedom to demonstrate.
"It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath
the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who
allows the protester to burn the flag."

(Please pass this on so I won't have to kick your ass!) :-)
"If you can read this, thank a teacher"
"If you are reading it in English, thank a veteran


  1. Mom,
    Please accept my apology for being UA for a while. I meant no disrespect, and would prefer you did not kick my ass… though it may deserve kicking.

    Go NAVY!
