I have been asked a few of these questions myself. A couple of them I would laugh off, other I think are as personal as asking what my wife looked like naked. Do you guys agree with this list? Would you add to it?

I don't like the idea that some people feel that they need to walk on eggshells around a veteran, feel free to ask me any question you want. If you ask me how my wife looks naked I'll simply answer that she looks better than yours.

Yep...ask me anything. If I want to answer I will, if not I won't. It's REALLY not that difficult. People need to get thicker skin these days...

I've got to the point where I like to watch them cringe if the answer surprise them. Or if the question bothers me, I'll tell him it's none of their &$@!?&$? Business.

"Yeah, I killed a guy at work one time for asking stupid questions. It felt good. Anything else you want to ask me?"

If someone asks a question that is clearly inappropriate and a smart ass answer isn't going to make them go away, the old fall back is "Do I really need to explain to you why that is an inappropriate question?"

I think the list was put together by someone trying too hard.

Most of them (all but 3-4) were inane, and really no big deal, and the only 2 that really crossed the line (for me) were:

No. 14: Did any of your buddies die overseas?
No. 2: Did you ever kill anyone?

Everything else was just uninformed/ignorant.I'm not going to be offended by someone being ignorant.

Sgt Aaron Kennedy, MS #2 should be #1 and #14 should be #2 IMO.

SGM Steve Wettstein - Agree. And honestly, it should be a list of 2... maybe 3 incase I missed one.

The article is stupid. I'm getting tired of all the bullshit political correctness that has a lot of people walking on egg shells in order to not to offend anyone, whether it's the wrong Halloween costume or the wrong questions or whatever. Just because you're offended by something I've done, does not mean I've done anything to offend you. Get a thicker skin; life is just too short.

maybe they are doing these rhetorical questions to get points for their overall status?
