I've absorbed many humorous insults, and given more then I would like to admit, But there is one thing that makes me want to knock some one out! I ABSOLUTELY hate when some one who never served in the military calls me a gay sailor. I told two guys this week the following " I'll take what ever is said about my service from a Marine, Soilder, or Airman with a smile, but a draft dodger like you has no right to insult my service. It happens to be one of the things in life I'm most proud of." I could tell it cut both individuals to the core, and what they got instead of me being insulted, was a deep sense of knowing I will always be a better man for what I've done.
Since we're on this topic, I'll have to admit I wish I could take back some of the comments I've made.
