So I stole this from Erin and thought I would share with everyone as well.
Rules for the Non-Military
Rules for the Non-Military
'We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation
has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.
For those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand.
Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:
1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat)
during the playing of the National Anthem - kick their ass.
2.. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American
Flag in protest - kick their ass.
3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the
highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone
doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans
fought for the very freedom they bask in every second.
Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make
this Nation great.
Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.
4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were.
Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues,
telling Others that you used to be 'Special Forces'.
Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were
seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your
5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not
'Do you fly a jet?' Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot.
Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).
6. If you witness someone calling the Coast Guard 'non-military',
inform them of their mistake - and kick their ass.
7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade,
get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand
over your heart.
Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to
be carrying her - of course, failure to do either of those could earn
you a severe ass-kicking.
9. 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to me -
stop saying it!
If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore would kick
10. 'Flyboy' (*Air Force*), 'Jarhead' (*Marines*), 'Grunt'
(*Army*),'Squid' (*Navy*), 'Puddle Jumpers'(*Coast Guard*), etc., are
terms of endearment we use describing each other.
Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them.
Using them could get your ass kicked.
11. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member
of the military, support our troops and their families.
Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family
and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers,
sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with
Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day.
Without them, our Country would get it's ass kicked.
12. It's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.
It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.
It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom
It's the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester
to burn the flag.
I am so proud of my hubs for everything he does for our freedom, and every one else that is also fighting for us. They are all brave men and women who deserve this at the least. Support our troops.
Thanks to all of them and my wonderful Hubs, Love you babe
