It is not only felt by Military community. It is felt most keenly by the Gold Star families.

The family of a veteran is part of this community. They may not fully understand, but they care to make the attempt to better understand.

I mean c'mon people can you knock it off. You all have the wherewithal to apply wisdom to what you've read. I swear some people always feel the need to demonstrate their foolishness by adding their two-cents, as though the author purposefully meant to be negligent; "military community" is applicable as the reader sees fit. There's no need to list every single person each reader feels is part of the "military community".

I never forget those that I shared times with. I think about my time in the Army everyday and I try to share it with those that have no idea. I love my military family and even though I am no longer an active member, I will always be there for my battle buddies! The Military is my family as much as those that are related by blood. My thoughts are of those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.... It will ALWAYS matter to me! I appreciate your words.

SGT Wisecarver - why aren't you still in ? Ever think of the USAR? Just an idea.

1SG Blount, I was thinking the same thing. Seems like SGT Wisecarver would continue to make an excellent NCO with an attitude and commitment like that. Maybe the USAR is a good idea.

Aaron,
Well written, well spoken, well intended. Well done! You have appropriately captured what many a veteran thinks/experiences/ponders on a daily basis. Our community is just that - a community of people who have served. We share a common bond that can only be penetrated if you have those same experiences.

There's a reason why only 1% of our population is in this elite group!

The smartest thing I did was to remain active duty and in my second family,The US Military (USAF). I think had I separated after my first hitch I most likely would not be here to post my opinion instead I would most likely be dead. I brought baggage home from the Vietnam era and thankfully I had WWII&Korea Vet relatives and friends who helped me through some dark days. I continued in the USAF and retired after 21 years.
