So both to those who want to focus on the imperfections of our military institutions and foreign policy, as well as those who say this thread isn't related to World of Warcraft, I offer this apropos reminder:

To ask why we fight is to ask why the leaves fall. It is in their nature. Perhaps, there is a better question.

Why do we fight? To protect home, and family. To preserve balance, and bring harmony for my kind. The true question is: What is worth fighting for?

This brought a tear to my eye. Thank you, Zarhym.

To all of my brothers and sisters in arms, both past and present: Happy Veterans Day!

And to all of the people that make the effort to thank us when we venture out in public in our uniforms: Thank you for your support!
Much respect to all Veterans(My father is a Navy vet). I wanted to serve but it became apparent that my weak knees couldn't handle the stress of the military life after going through Boot Camp(Best experience in my live and showed me that I still had much to learn in life). It's a shame though since some of the greatest men and women I've ever met in my life were those from Boot Camp. Glad nearly all of them made it and made something of themselves.

I also met a Russian woman at Boot Camp so she could reach the American Dream. It was touching since all of her hard work paid off in the end.

FYI, Fort Sil OK has both genders together in Boot Camp. They kept telling us not to screw this up and that the higher ups are paying close attention to see how well the genders can work together(Though we obviously weren't the first group they did this with). Seems all their fears were for naught since outside the first week the horn dog effect had passed off and no one really cared anymore.

Yeah when I was at Sill for BCT there was a dude there from RUS who joined the Army and was in the process of getting his citizenship, it was pretty cool. I met (and still am meeting) people from all over the world and it's pretty amazing. I'm stationed in Okinawa, Japan now which is pretty awesome.

I wanted to go to the Veteran's Day ceremony this morning but I needed the rest to get over this stomach virus.. I'll def go next time I have the chance (hopefully next year).

Veteran here! Served in the Navy on the USS Toledo. It's a fast attack submarine, the kind that hunts enemy ships and subs and doesn't carry nukes.
Thank you for posting this.

All gave some, some gave all. Thank you to all the men and women in uniform.

Without you, the people in this thread bashing you wouldn't have the freedom to do so.

This thread exists to pay respect on this day to our brothers and sisters in the community who've pledged their lives to their country, as well as everyone else who has served throughout history.

There's no place for debate here. If you've come to this thread to argue foreign policy, criticize the use of military force in any context, or otherwise spin this into a political discussion, you'll be removed from the forums.

Thanks for understanding. :)
