    PS Make sure you read "what is a vet" and "military rules for non military"!

    Grossman's sheepdog speech is familiar, but the "what is a vet" and "military rules for nonmilitary personnel" were not. Thanks for posting them. They say what should be said.

    This is my favorite:

    "(5) Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, "Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt)."

    Hmmm.

    I have a capacity for violence. As far as my fellow citizens go I am empathetic.

    But I freely acknowledge that my level of empathy falls a little short of the deep and abiding love toward my fellow citizens of which Colonel Grossman so eloquently speaks.

    Does this make me a sheep-puppy? Or a low-rent psycho? A psycho sheep-puppy?

    In all seriousness, though, Grossman's first book, "On Killing" was a masterpiece. Actual, systematic, organized, useful thought on killing (just like the title suggests).

    I didn't care much for his second book (or at least the second of his books that I read), "On Combat". Lots of glorifying warriors- -nothing's wrong with that, but it wasn't the same sort of detached dissemination of information and communication of ideas that "On Combat" was.

    I guess my point is that there are people who aren't sheep, wolves or sheep dogs.

    No one can be "on" 24/7, for a lifetime. Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself... "Baa."
    This puts into words what I have thought often, when I am going to "just" run up to the store for milk, or beer. I love it. I will think of this quote for as long as I live.

    Now, does anyone know what the word for "that's what I was thinking but couldn't put it into words" is.
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
