Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Again you caan see what we are for state: Useful intelligent meat, state does not feel any obligation to take care of soldiers ("They got paid, didn´t they? And we paid the training as well!!")

Low, as you say, from our POV.

~Sarcasm Alert~

This makes me so proud of my country.

Back to serious...

This does not surprize this Viet Vet, as I have lived with the abandonment since the day I returned from the war zone. We were the first GIs to not win our war (Yeah I know about Korea, but they arent perceived as losers) The concept of an ever victorious US Military died with our failure (yeah, I know it was doomed from the start, but that doesnt change the perception). My recent 2 1/2 year battle with the Dept of Vet Affairs was just another aspect of this "use 'em an' lose 'em" mentality. In all fairness to my country, I suspect this type of treatment is not all that uncommon around the globe.

Hence a reminder to all who would step up to defend their country, your patriotism is a badge of honor to be worn over your heart and I salute you, but do not forget, on the stage of the world, you are but a pawn.

Back to flippant...

alright... who's the Troll that got me started?

This is very true, this is not unique to the United States.
And few countries gives their troops as much support as the United States.

On that note, I still think Born on the Fourth of July is one of the best war films ever made.
