Okay, for those who have been wondering what happened to me, I had to fulfill some of my obligations with good ole Uncle Sam. Being sent to Fort Polk, La. is like being handed down a sentence to Huntsville..Needless to say, I was overseas during Desert Storm/Shield and I was lucky to remain state side during Iraqi Freedom. But what caught my attention: Is the public no longer supporting our troops? It seems like the days of the ribbons tied around trees and antenna’s are long gone. Yes you see a bumper sticker here and a flag there but back in 1990-92 you could drive down any street and every yard had a sign reading support our troops…Not only that you could also walk in any store and buy a bumper sticker, a ribbon or even a camouflaged suit to support the cause..All that seems to disappear, at least for the most part. What happen to the courtesies merchants gave out to the returning troops such as free tickets, discounted prices, free meals? Was it just me or did it seem as though racism was pushed aside and everyone hated Saddam? Has the war on gas made us forget about the guys that are dying everyday?? Do you feel you are obligated to support your troops that are fighting and protecting your country?? How do you show your support???
