No soldier is asking for respect. We want to do our job, get paid and find our way thru life like everyone else. We just chose to join the military for a variety of reasons; lack of college money, lack of skills, duty, patriotism...you name it. People (normal people) just typically give that respect because of what we do give up; time, family, freedom, limbs, lives, and so on. I have never heard a soldier demand respect...but that's how people who actually know how the military works usually respond when then encounter a soldier. I served for six years three of which I was deployed, I was shot at, blown up, and had to do things that still very much effect me today....eight years later. We don't claim to be superheros and most do not try to be. Soldiers are typically young men and women who take care of each other and follow orders, who at times are called to be heros. The hero normally ends up dead...with a medal of honor. Trust me, no soldier wants to be a hero, they do it for the guy next to him. War may be wrong, these recent wars maybe wrong, but you might want to talk to your parents who most likely pay for everything you own and always have. The poor go to war for the rich who use war to protect their oil, minerals and other interests. So respect who you want to respect...but get some perspective on life. You really sound ignorant.
Well stated sir. Thank you for your service.
I couldn't have said it better, Brother. I can't think of even one time in 11 yrs that I "demanded" respect. I can't recall even once hearing another of our brothers or sisters "demand" respect. Her post is nothing more than a poorly educated possibly rich kid spouting off about something obviously knows nothing about. Probably parroting what she's heard from other poorly educated people who lack any insight and see life from only their own perspective. That "apology" cites so many excuses for what she said. What's more is that the quotes from her 17/18 year olds sounds made up on the spot to justify her rant. They also do not address then issue of what she said. She specifically mentions military members not kids going in the military.
Well said I have never demanded any respect in my entire service
Sadly I was unable to join the military after I was struck by a drunk driver. And caused irreversible damage to make back and knee. But I have many friends who were and still are soldiers. Sadly even though they're all still alive. Most of them aren't the same happy guys I grew up with. Ones ex wife even tried to use the fact that he killed people in war, simply to say he was a danger to his son. And one judge actually agreed. And said his job in the military combined with his injury, proved if angered by the child. He could harm him. And also took away his guns. Luckily another judge who was a former pilot in the air force said they couldn't remove his guns. And said taking a marines child for serving his country was criminal. She gave him split custody. He never demanded respect. He just demanded something that all of us loving dads want. And that's to have the time with our children that the children deserve. But sadly I have met a few officers who demand respect. Most don't, and they deserve every bit of it like our soldiers, fire fighters, and EMTs do. But some care more about "taking respect" (which seems more like they want fear over respect, or they confuse the two). But 90 percent of police officers are great men and women, who care. People need to appreciate every man and woman who puts their lives on the line for us.
You wrote a check to the United States of America, payable in the amount of up to or including your life. That's why you're respected. That's a brave fucking thing to do. 'Merica, fuck yeah!
Bobby Volm looks like he needs a dose of reality as well. Douche bag.
I was about to say the same thing.
I agree 100%
Would you admit it if you did?
Hey you can make any comment you want, and I will always be ready to protect your 1st Amendment rights. I do not have to like what you say, but I will tell you this....people like you can make inflammatory comments to get some kind of attention and while I am happy to protect your rights I am also sad for you. I believe you are an empty shell that thrives on getting attention. Have a great life and no thanks regarding your apology. I do not need thank yous, apologies, or idiotic comments thrown my way.
This comment has been removed by the author.
Amen on your comment, sounds like a Paris Hilton apology to me. So very very sad. And you don't ask for a thank you, but you do deserve one. Everyone who thinks like her should be lined up behind the front lines, then they can stand there when you set down your guns and walk away, what would they do then?
Is she an empty shell??? Or did she notice a pattern of injustice which is far to complex for most to understand, which she lacks the ability to properly communicate?? So when you look at it objectively, empty shell, or possibly revolutionary??
I love how the apology includes, "So don't take what I've said and change it into something that I would never say." --- Please! This isn't an apology - this is a response to all of the NEGATIVE attention you ended up with when you went on your little tirade. It might be easier to take ANYTHING you said a little easier if you had at least backed up your rants with facts. Those pesky little things seem to get in the way when ignorance is broadcasted for the world to read. One example: Education - before you blast about recruits not working in High School because they have joined the military, perhaps you should research the number of College graduates in the military vs the number in the civilian population. Education is valued in the military!Example Two: Alcohol -- most recruits join when they are still younger than 21 -- thus going into any bar (stateside) and receiving "free drinks" is not happening just because they are in the military. I know this since two of my sons joined before they were 21 and I've been out with them to restaurants where they were still "carded" after they turned 21 -- even when they were in uniform! Since one son joined when he was 17 and the other when he was 18 -- your descriptions of 17 & 18 years old from your personal experience is more of a statement of who you choose to associate with than than the reality of our soldiers. Word of advice -- when you truly feel sorry for something you have done -- provide an honest apology. Thank you!
Thank you for this post
Yes! So true! I graduated basic when I was still only 18, so I agree
Hey sweetheart, she was 17 when she posted this. Do you feel like a bad ass for picking on a high schooler.... 3 years after they made a post??? A lot of learning happens from 17-20.
Good for you that you also hate the military. Would you like a medal? And you are not a troll slayer you are a troll.
She is just mad no guy in uniform would take her seriously. That's why she's dating a Taco Bell cashier. I don't know what they are teaching her in that college. More people died in Chicago than American soldiers last year...really? She would at least be right if she said that more people who deserve to die died in Chicago than American soldiers. She's going to end up with a thug with no job and will be another statistic or end up in prison this year. Hope she have a wonderful life.
Ha! Make me smile, but it's true
Isnt vigilantes deciding who gets to die the exact thing y'all are trying to glorify these guys fighting for???? This is a bit of a paradox. You may want to rethink you're argument.
I am a veteran, I wore my uniform because of pride. Never because I needed or wanted respect, that I earned on my own. Alexia, you need to educate yourself a little more and maybe learn to give and earn the respect of others, and the best part for that is you don't need an uniform for that.
Well said! As a British ex coldstream guardsman and then a medic I can take great pride in my former jobs. People like me and others allow you desk warriors the freedom to do do what ever you may wish. Apart from fighting in five other countries I can also say that I have helped folk that would of been murdered or tortured. Stood on mines left by servs , Russians or Taliban. I have helped did dead children and mothers from mass graves in the balkens. What have you done I wonder.Being a soldier isn't about killing or domination of centuries ago its now trying to keep balance in an over populated world of crime and racial hate
Hate is hate, buddy.
Also, I think she's trying to say that there are many types of people in this world who give up so much of themselves for others without so much as a second glance there way, but if you sign a paper and wear a uniform it's automatically like "bow down to me". And the fact that me addressing this disgusts most people only sharpens my point. She's not trying to say that soldiers don't deserve respect, she's trying to say that other people do. She just sucks at words.
Nah I like learning every day how to kill someone. Fun stuff you should try it sometime. Besides we still have guys out there getting shot at every day. How about try to live our lives. You actually get to see your family I haven't seen my own mother and little brother for almost a year now and I'm about to deploy so that's another half a year spent away from my own family. I may not see a war during my time in the military but at least I stood up and decided to serve my nation even if I'm not doing what I signed up for as an infantryman. I'm still protecting the rights of my family and friends and even this person and everyone else that lives with this mentality. And I'll happily do it every day knowing I did the right thing for myself and my country for enlisting in the marines. And there have been much better men and women than me that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that you could make a post insulting every single servicemember. So love your life taking it for granted while there is a mother living with the fact that her son or daughter lost their life. But we take pride that we're following in their footsteps making sure that you can have your rights secured. I honestly haven't done jack shit yet other than train I haven't seen a fight I've never been shot at but I will still wear my title with pride because at least I'm doing something to give back to my country.
Thank you for service for our great country. Bless you...
I respect you fully
You are the lowest form of scum on earth. You have NO idea what combat is. There is a HUGE difference between chicago and iraq/afghanistan and any other war zone. You dont deserve the freedoms you have, that others have fought and died for, been injured for. You are the same as hanoi jane. She is forever branded a traitor, and rightfully so. You, youre just a liberal bitch. And after seeing your views on the military, if i saw you being assaulted, knowing i could save you, i would walk away. After all, i learned hand to hand combat for my own personal gain didnt i? To have you know, i signed up because my great grandfather served, my grandfather served, my father served, and i served. All of us have seen combat. Do me one favor bitch. Its too late to apologize, it has fallen on deaf ears. You only apologized for one reason amd one reason only. Because of the backlash that your anti-American words have brought upon you. You deserve everything you get. I have no sympathy for you. Not that you give a fuck, but ive bled for my flag and my country, and lost brothers. May you die never knowing life.
Can't pick and choose who you protect ya douche. That just makes it obvious her point of view is correct. You only want the glory, you only want to help those who view you in the esteem you wish. THAT is the issue, and I totally agree with her. Want to come punch me in the face? Love to see ya try, I'd give you a damn address and a bus ticket too. Need to shut the fuck up about your own hateful and spiteful opinion. I DIDN'T sign up because my great grandfather did, grandfather and father all served. They didn't want any of us kids caught up in the political bullshit they claim to protect. Yet, even in your words you PROVE her point. You would walk away from an innocent person? How the fuck do you know that all the people you helped were so innocent or viewed you in the limelight you so desperately seek? Fucking ignorant to give someone shit over the rights you swore to protect for them. She doesn't need to fucking apologize for speaking her mind, that's the whole goddamn point of the first amendment you swore to uphold. What's next, won't save someone because they don't follow your religion? Same fist amendment violation. Fucking moron. YOU are the traitor. YOU are refusing to uphold the oath you swore. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.
Dave! Bless your red, white, and blue blood! This dumb bitch doesn't know war or Chicago!! She is probably one of them spoiled little suburban bitches that think their opinions really matter!!! HELL NO! I am not military but my grandfather and uncle served and my heart and love goes out to all who protect us! I am from Chicago and it hurts my heart that anyone from my beautiful city would be such a fucking fake! God bless you brother and the same to all of you sisters also! 5hank you all for being our voice!
Hi, aren't you glorifying the people fighting against the people who think they get to decide who lives and dies?? Once again, a bit of a paradox. How so many of you think this is a good argument is beyond me. This is highly illogical 🖖
Also, dawn, you peppy little shit! Protecting is great! We need it! We love it! But protecting is not shaming and harassing for a difference of opinion! The irony at all of you people's "love" and misuse of freedom.
She specifically made reference to those who see no combat do you just selectively choose what to read....reform it into a new statement then blurt stupidity? Not to mention she also said she was talking about the prideless idiots who just want to hold a gun hit the clubs and pretend to be hot shit if this point is lost on you stop reading. Stop commenting. Your an idiot.
Send her ass to the desert for a year.....another JANE what a shame
How about apologizing to the families of military people that have died defending the freedom that you have to act like spoil (s^p^d) girl. It would be nice if you would visit a VETERAN Hospital and see for your self the heroes that have give it all for our country.
I will Fuck her rabbit ass looking self up. Don't hide now honey you said that dumb ass shit come out and play.
Naw..she is hiding because people are still shaming her. I found her facebook but the picture is blank. that is how you know it is her.
I don't put up wit Bitches like u alexia or anyone that bashes military. I put my ass on the line to keep y'all safe in America. I did it cause I wanted to n idiotic people like y'all need to be hung for sayin Shit like that.
Once again, are you really fighting for our freedom or protection if you thing that you are almighty enough to decide who does?!?!?!
Dear miss princess alexia you know everyone has there reasons for joining the military and for that we should all be very greatful! No our service men and women don't ask for respect but we should give it to them they don't expect free drinks at a bar but it's a kind gesture indeed they don't ask for support from there fellow Americans but we damn sure better give it!!! What you've failed to mention in your statement of you're pronounced very very disrespectful bullshit is that these people sacrifice a lot to defend our country and the people who are in it thousands,millions of people they will never ever meet without question now who the fuck are you too pop off about our military you should be thanking them because without them you would of never had a choice to give you're damn opinion in the first place!! For our service men and women they sacrifice being at home with there family,kids taking first steps first words some not able to be there for there child being born marital problems cause some wives can't stand the absence they put there own life on the line for ogre looking chicks with obscure opinions JUST LIKE YOU so before you open you're mouth again think looonnnggg and hard about it! Three or more times I highly doubt you're that intelligent......and screw your apology I hope you get shit for the rest of you're days for what you did! And A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN FOR KERPING OUR COUNTRY AND MY FAMILY SAFE!!!
Your apology/"retraction" is NOT accepted. I cannot believe the audacity & ignorance of so many 20 somethings & younger these days. Makes me sad. Learn some freaken respect.
You smacked ass, dirty little piece of shit! You don't want me fighting for your freedom then get the fuck out of MY country! Cunt!
So freedom really isn't free then?
Where is this stupid girl at? Why talk like how u did and then run??
Because who the fuck can fight all of the brainwashed internet by themselves?!?! Poor girl didn't know what she was up against.
Wow, if stupid was a truck, she'd own more semis than U-Haul. What a moron.
I noticed that this Facebook account is now deleted. Both my grandfathers, both my parents, two of my brothers and I all wore the uniform with pride. Our families sacrificed holidays, birthdays and stability so we could preserve your right to say stupid things on social media. What did I get in return? Constant pain, nightmares and the realization that the people who benefit from my sacrifice and the sacrifice of my brothers and sisters are people like you. I'm glad you deleted your Facebook page because it wouldn't have paid for me to be able to address you directly. These statements are your right but so are the consequences princess, I hope you enjoy the noteriety. The 8000 homeless veterans in Michigan thank you for the revelation that they can simply start demanding free drinks and the like for their service. I suppose we should all start worshipping the Kardashians like this silly little waste of nine pints of blood. What a freaking joke!
Moron? More off is more like it. In a way you may have come close to part of the reason for joining the military. My parents had four kids and there was no way they could send us all to college. My father was a USAF vet, sister a USAF vet, 2 brothers are Army vets and myself, US Coast Guard. We did not join because of the reasons you gave little girl, we did it because it was our duty to give for our country. We did it so you would still have the right to spew off your garbage. Do we expect gratitude, respect and anything else.....no. Have a nice life
There are no words in the American language for this little girl. Here profile is now gone. Lol that's the best thing that could have happened to this tyrant.
She's not a fuckjn g tyrant you said t your self she was a little girl excuse the fuck out of her for questioning and being rebellious. I did not realize that the sun shine out of your ass, and like minded asses only.
you people dont realize that all these Rights you are talking about, soldiers went and faught for so you can keep them, but yet you still think you owe them no respect...
Im.glad her profile is gone because I was going to message that stupid troll ugly bitch whore
Some people just amaze me even some of my fellow service members if u have any pride u would b as pissed as I am yes some of the shit our government does is dumb but most of us don't do it for the government I did it cause I personally lost someone n Iraq so I did it for my friends family and also vengeance that may not b a good reason to some people but it was for me so till the shit talkers have the balls to sign up for any amount of time protecting this country or whatever reasons u deam worthy SHUT THE FUCK UP till then and to all those who supported and honored us service members ty
The point is that some don't see it as a good fight. So why would they sign up??
Because no matter what Great War we indulge in and win there will always still be hateful fucks, and this whole thread makes that clear.
This person is probably her. (TheGreatTROLLSlayer_of_Wonderland). Or probably knows the bitch, since he's taking up for her.
We join for ourselves not to make ourselves look like we are any higher then anyone else. This girl has her head so far up her ass it disgusts me. She's probably mad because no military boy, or girl would ever be interested in her fat ass cake face. OO-RAH
Would you admit it if you did though???
Have you ever served our country Alexis?
Very stupid the millitary deserves all respect ��
Funny, my dad is a doctor, and he learned it in part by being a combat medic in Vietnam. Hell of a residency if you ask me. Oh well, don't be too hard on this misinformed young lady. SHe'll figure it out. Most likely she posted it because she got dumped or mistreated by a Marine ;)
This girl is clearly an uneducated stupid, moronic individual. Her statement aboit not having to try hard in school anymore because you're joining the military. Doesn't she realize everyone that joins the military has to pass the ASVAB. Although supposed to be based on a highschool level I'm a Registered nurse with a bachelor's degree and found some of it difficult. It's not like it use to be where people in trouble can join to straighten their life up. They want intelligent men who can pass at a certain level, if you cannot obtain a certain score, you can't even join. My son's in the Army stationed currently In El Paso, she might spew this bs on the Internet but if I ever heard someone say something like this in public I'd probably I'd say something. This is a stupid ignorant bitch and her apology is not legit. It was just a way for her to not get her ass kicked.
This cunt needs to be slapped back into reality. Those of us who have been or are currently serving NEVER demand respect. We serve because we want to be a part of something that's bigger than ourselves, a Brother/Sisterhood. This half assed apology is horseshit. You can't call this an apology because you got called out like the cunt you are. SMDH...I feel sorry for you sweetheart!
The sad thing isn't Alexia's comment it's these "adults" reaction to it. So sensitive. Pride so easily hurt, emotionally weak. She was young when she said this your attacking the teenager not the twenty something. But your minds are too shallow to grasp the concept, turn your hand and let it go. She reffered to arrogant people who join with no pride or values. People who don't do it for our country who make a mockery of the enlisted. Food for thought like it or not there are plenty such soldiers arrogant and horrible to citizens out of some feeling of being better than everyone I've seen many times as many others have. True soldiers making a difference out of real values and morals deserve respect. Too bad not every soldier have those reasons going in and coming out so think from a logical perspective stop being childish and immature and let it go. Especially when most of you can't even understand the context anyway.
Too late...it's posted on Stolen Valor's Facebook page where all the angry Veterans see it. Her page will be gone within the day I bet because those Vets don't play. She's a selfish, jealous girl who probably got turned down or her heart broken by a Military Guy. Thank you to all service members, past and present.
Soldiers fight for your FREEDOM and right to talk shit about whatever you want just like you did in your rant earlier , Grant it we don't respect you and your opinions but hay that's why we fight wars so you can have the freedom to talk and say whatever you want .So you keep talking your shit and go to college so that you can contribute to this GREAT COUNTRY CALLED AMERICA , HOME of THE FREE and the BRAVE !When you get out of school, Have a Nice day SPOILED Brat !
