Question for the Vets that Know What Honor Is!

Question for the Vets that Know What Honor Is!

Grunt.com Admin |

This is just a quick question to all of the military vets out there. Would you rather go back to the field and defend you country with your life, or, would you rather join the NFL and get to do what they usually do and get paid millions? By the way, I’m only asking this question so that I can write about the salaries for you guys in the military and the NFL. It’s for school and I don’t know any military guys that live near me. Also, if you’re an Air Force vet, plz don’t be offended by the pictures that are on here. I found them funny.

I’m 60 and would rather re-enlist for permanent KP duty than take a dollar of NFL money. I was the biggest Steeler fan you’ve ever seen. But I’ll never watch anymore NFL football. I’ve quite enjoyed getting all the time back in my life I’ve wasted watching football to be honest.

Jim Townsend,

I would ” fall in saddle up, get off my dead ass and on my dying feet ” at 82 and defend my country. Semper Fi to all my Marine buddies old and young. We all share the same DNA.

Ira,

No doubt I would join in with fellow Marines. I love this country and all it’s diversity. We live in a country that has more freedoms than others. Without brave service members, this country and the citizens of it would not have the right to do even half the things they enjoy doing daily. Good to another country and try doing the same as you do in the USA. Your punishment will be much greater than a Twitter comment, or o opinions of fellow citizens. Marine or NFL? MARINE any day!

Anthony Collins,

Semper Fi, will not watch nfl

Sgt James White 72-76,

It’s not a question I would fight for my country in a heart beat. I was in the Corps in 67 fought in Nam. So I will fight again.

Jimmy Searcy,

RAYMOND FUSTON,

He’ll yeah I would go back on active duty again. My step-son is at Pendleton now. I was active duty 6/92 to 6/96.

Mark,

“Certified/Commissioned Law Enforcement….Police violence”??? I call BS. I’m wearing motor boots and sitting on a black and white motorcycle right now and can tell you have no idea what you are talking about. Real cops don’t list a fake resume to bolster their self-perceived prowess. You are missing the whole point of this topic. Don’t put caveats on whether or not you would go back with fellow Marines. You just proved what your real answer is. If you don’t like this country- get out. I’m sure NOKO would be glad to have you. Know your audience.

Streetjudge,

Rodger that.

Robert Dickerson,

I think this student’s question is a total non sequitur. First, no one enlists in the Marine Corps to get rich, it is an honor to serve as a U.S. Marine. Not everyone is qualified to fulfill that honor. Second, if comparing salaries is your game, include all professional athletes on one side of the ledger and include teachers, teachers aids, nurses, medical technicians, and providers of elder care on the other as folks who do vital jobs but are vastly underpaid to do them. About those NFL players, most of them play for less than a dozen years and most spend the rest of their lives living in pain inside a body or brain that has been permanently damaged – I don’t envy them at all. In my community a large number of those active NFL athletes spend considerable time giving back to their (our) communities in various charitable and volunteer ways. Also on the subject of the NFL, those athletes protesting the institutional racism in our legal system have every right, as set forth in the 5th amendment to do just that. Protesting injustice is every bit as patriotic as serving in uniform. I proudly served as a Marine specifically to preserve that very constitution. Finally, insofar as serving in combat again, I know full well that at my age and basic level of strength and endurance I would be a hindrance on the battle field and would not want to compromise the safety of other Marines by having them have to look out for my enfeebled self. The soul is willing but the flesh is now weak. I serve today by honesty in all of my dealings with others, pulling my weight at work and in the family, by staying informed and voting. Semper Fi, Marines.

Robert Dickerson,

Yep, I’ll ship for 6.

The Deuce,

Go again at 74. Can’t run for sh*t but my heart still beats to my DI’s cadence!

Bulldogman – L/CPL,

Of course I would go back and defend the country. Even if there are those that are un-happy about how things are going in the US. They have that right because WE fought for that right. SEMPER FI BROTHERS and SISTERS.

Patrick McBride,

The only hero that played in the NFL is Pat Tillman. He left everything behind to serve his country.

Patrick McBride,

I would go back in a heart beat, the NFL knee shit heads should have been deported, they are all ungrateful cowards.
