Anyone who thinks service members wear their service dress uniform (or any uniform for that matter) trying to get free stuff or pickup chicks is sadly mistaken (there may be a few exceptions but that applies to anything).
Agreed. And I work in a building with 16,000 service members every single day, 12,000 of which are officers. I know a great many of them, and not one of them has that attitude. Not ONE.

You are two for two in the insight dept. this week Luanne.
When I was 12, and visiting the USA for the very first time, my father pulled me aside and said "watch out for Americans, and be careful what you say.... they are 1000x more patriotic than we are, and it can sometimes be irritating to someone who doesn't understand"....
I still don't understand why the biggest and the best has to always say it. Isn't it obvious?

Come on CruzNut, where is your Freedom of Expression Spirit?
Most people who has been following this board for quite some time have learned not to take old CC all that seriously.
Sometimes I agree with CC, most of the time I don't. He puts a different spin on most threads and that's good. Can you just imagine how boring it would be if everbody had the same opinion?
I fully support freedom of expression. Everyone has the right to their own opinion as long as it matches mine.
