It's important to acknowledge why America is the Land of the Free.

Hey ,tell that to Senator Dicky Durbin,Quote: he called are military men and women Nazi's and women and child killers,but then again him and people like him were put back in government how sad.

when and where did Durbin say this. Sounds made up.
9:28 am on Monday, November 12, 2012
Durbin said, after the discoveries of the mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, that their treatment was compared to what the Nazis did. Sean Hannity and Fox ran with half of the sentence (as usual) and whined about it because they love Nazi like torture so much. That's what happened.

Was Durbin wrong? Not 100% of our troops are good. There's a small percentage that rape/murder innocent people. Not to mention the disgusting excuse of a solider that threw a puppy off a cliff to its death and laughed.

Here is what he said:
Watch it yourself and make up your own mind.
Just remember, these "Nazi troops" are young men and women put in a terrible place and told to do terrible things. These young men and women have seen things that you or I can't imagine and for one of their "leaders" to disparage them by comparing them to Nazis is absolutely disgusting.
I guess that Durbin forgot who sent these kids over to fight the war. Does that make him like Hitler or Rommel?

Hey "BS", your intolerance is showing. You know who else was intolerant, don't you?
4:13 pm on Monday, November 12, 2012
If showing my intolerance means that I don't like when a career politician that never served in the armed forces compares our troops to Nazis, then yes, I am.
The last time I looked, none of our troops led people to gas chambers, put people into concentration camps, or committed genocide against our enemies.
Too bad for the terrorists, who have beheaded prisoners, hung prisoners from bridges, and attack from within the civilian population to avoid fighting in the open.
I don't know for sure, but I would bet that none of the troops want to be there, but politicians such as Durbin are the ones that sent them there.
So, yeah, I am intolerant of people like Durbin (and, from your statements, you) insulting my fellow brothers in arms with comparisons to Nazis.

I volunteered for the Veterans honor flight benefit again this year at Bally Doyle in Aurora. It went very well with lots of volunteers and $$$$ raised. Thank you to all of the American veterans for all you have done for our country and its people...........
Hope to see you again next year!!!!!

I was there and was one of the people at the door selling tickets and then collecting the 50/50 raffles tickets as well. Herschel, raised of $7,700 dollars for the Honor Flight Chicago. With that money they can send 14 veterans to DC at the cost $550.00 a piece. Thanks for all that donated to a great cause.

I went on the honor flight as a volunteer with my Dad and Uncle 2 summers ago. It was a very moving experience and one of the best times I ever shared with my Dad. The caring for all of those old vets by military and non military personnel was amazing. The welcome home ceremony at midway airport brought us all to tears. I highly recommend participating as a volunteer for Honor flight Chicago.

So what is the point of the comment by halcon? Even between all the coach factory outlet links it still is incoherent rambling. I saw a veteran of the Vietnam War this morning and shook his hand for his service.

he posted the same thing under chongsheng on a different post. Don't get it.

Thought this was great. My daughter sent me this.
THE FINAL INSPECTION
The Soldier stood and faced God,
which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
just as brightly as his brass.
'Step forward now, Soldier,
how shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?'
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'no, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
that wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
when the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place,
among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
except to calm their fears
If you've a place for me here, Lord,
it needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
but if you don't, I'll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
for the judgment of his God.
'Step forward now, you Soldier,
you've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
you've done your time in Hell.'
