  1. I remember soldiers talk of being spit on once they returned to the US or being called ‘Baby Killers.’ There were a variety of bad things that happened, not all soldiers were guilty but those Vietnam vets really got it. It was a different kind of disrespect.

    • Yes, it definitely was a different kind. Many soldiers in my town had died. I cannot recall anyone being so inhumane to the families. What is happening now is harrassment to such a degree that I have not seen before. It always strikes a nerve when God is mentioned. God is personal and those protestors basically say God condemns you. Tis not their call.
      This is very disturbing.
      Thanks

  2. I remember when that “church” group came down to protest a local church in San Diego which ministers to a lot of military families. I have to say, I cannot understand what makes these great, horrible signs of disrespect okay within the minds of these protesters!

    From a military wife, I know the sacrifices. From a citizen of a free country, I am filled with awe and gratitude. From a person filled with love, I am hopeful that kind words sparking conversation such as this posts can end these intolerable protests!

    Thank you for this post for so many reasons!

  3. Hi Tara,
    i do not understand this type of disrespect and the threatening tone of this group. Do they really believe they are here to pass judgement? Unbelievable!
    Thanks go to the troops and their families such as yours.

  4. My mind has wandered back to this post a lot this week since learning military members have been notified they may not get paid next month. The federal government freeze will carry over to their pay also! Yes, back pay will be given, but in the mean time they will be required to work without pay until a new budget is signed.

    I get angry when I hear of civilians disrespecting our military members. But really, the federal government telling our service members they may not get paid until the budget gets worked out is even harder for me to swallow.

    Okay, vents over. :-) Sorry, just had to tell you that your post has come to my mind again and again with our newest news.

    • Hey, I vent about these things daily. I still cannot get over the injustice our veterans face. We give Billions to careless banks and unstable countries. Yet the nations veterans and citizens are asked to do without.
      No justice in that.
      Thanks Tara for your comments.
