My son just spent 9 months in Eastern Afghanistan training the Afghanis

And they were quite good at using the cannons when he left. Asshole.

1. And we respectfully salute your son. Thank you.

Liberals are NOT anti war. Liberals are anti bad war.

4. He is much younger, at 24

But he did get a kick out of the Afghanis asking him why he wasn't married yet!

5. A True Hero

My uncle, who is 25, is currently in Afghanistan on his fourth tour. Ryan is indeed an asshole.

6. A salute to him from a fellow servicemember

And I agree with an above post. Just because you're a liberal doesn't mean you don't support our military. It means you don't support crooked wealthy aristocrats controlling your fate. Military spending isn't the problem: if it's actually spent on GOVERNMENT military. The problem is war profiteers and private interest groups.

8. Good luck to your son, and best wishes to you

That was the longest 9 months of my entire life. My hope is that your son will also come home safe and sound.
