Nice save, cuz I definitely got a bit of a D-bag impression from the first post. I have a big problem with the people who think they're better than civilians because they served. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for the troops and what they do, the risks they take, and the sacrifices they make, but the superiority complex bugs the sh1t out of me. You're not better than me because you served any more than a white collar execurtive is better than blue collar worker; we all made a choice with our paths but that doesn't define who we are. I've known some great, honorable military members who get nothing but respect from me, but unfortunately I've known just as many who were lowlifes and joined cuz they had no other options.

As for me, I didn't serve. I chose college and a career because that's what I was always brought up planning/expecting to do. Military was never really a big consideration for me. If it had been, my parents probably would've tried to talk me out of it....they're the types who worry about everything and would've expected the worst.
