Please go into the Corps. I am a Marine, served from 1963 to '66 in Viet Nam and got a medical retirement when my med-vac chopper got shot down.

There never is a "good war" just a war that we must fight to preserve our way of life or because we have signed treaties with other countries to assist them when they're in combat. As a Marine who has seen combat I can only tell you that you will lose friends, you will go off by yourself and cry like a baby. But when your turn to fight is over you will know that you did your duty and be proud of it.

Why were the homosexual comments removed?

One person had said "Homosexuality is wrong" and someone responded "How is it wrong?"

...why do posts get deleted simply for starting a discussion? Are you that paranoid that it will start a "flame war" ... really? Pretty sure we're all mature enough to handle that kind of talk without being disrespectful...

But hey, what do I know

Not about whether something is right or wrong.. ie homosexuality or war. Talk about how they make you feel and which ones you really liked, etc. Not to start a whole different discussion.

And No, you're wrong. Most of the people here are far from mature.
And stating "homosexuality is wrong" is a statement, not something thats good for starting a discussion. Least not on here.

Now lets get back on topic.

There are so many great pictures in this thread! For me though, it's mostly music that I find inspiring or powerful. Don't know why. Maybe I just listen to music more often than I see pictures.

I love to get perspectives from people who were actually in the fray, and I agree completely. There is nothing to be more proud of than doing something that you may not want to with the chances of being killed or even killing, look on that, and knowing you did the right thing because of your beliefs. It may be you, not everyone leaves the military with pride, but I'm glad you did.

Powerful might not be the word, but motivating definitely is.

If you're Macedonian, or have friends that are...this is quite moving for them:

Alexander the Great

In the Olympics when the Hungarians were playing the Russians in Water Polo. This was right after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 against Russian oppression.

I have more, but this is okay for now...
