> 5. Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not

> 6. If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard
> 'non-military' , Inform them of their mistake - and
> kick their ass.
> 7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a
> parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by
> placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the
> military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her -
> of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a
> severe ass-kicking.
> 8. Don't try to discuss politics with a military
> member or a veteran. We are Americans, and we all bleed the
> same, regardless of our party affiliation. Our Chain of
> Command is to include our
> Commander-In- Chief (CinC). The President (for those who
> didn't know) is our CinC regardless of political party.
> We have no inside track on what happens inside those big
> important buildings where all those representatives meet.
> All we know is that when those civilian representatives
> screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go
> straighten it out. If you keep asking us the same stupid
> questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked!
> 9. 'Your mama wears combat boots.' never made

> 10. bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop
> saying 'Let's go kill those Commies!' And stop
> asking us where he is! Crystal balls are not standard issue
> in the military. That reminds me - if you see anyone calling

> kick their ass!
> 11. 'Flyboy' (Air Force), 'Jarhead'
> (Marines), 'Grunt' (Army), 'Squid' (Navy),
> 'Puddle Jumpers' (Coast Guard), etc., are terms of
> endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a

> 12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member
> of the military, support our troops and their families.
> Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with
> family and friends, please remember that there are literally
> thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from
> home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God
> for our military and the sacrifices they make every day.
> Without them, our country would get it's 'ass

> 'It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us

> 'It's the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who

> 'It's the Military who salutes the flag, who

> One more:
> 13. If you ever see anyone either standing for or singing
