    real Vietnam's Veteran service to be a slap in the face? I'm not even sure he realizes he is doing it. I'm not one to be easily offended, but this shit gets old. It really made my blood boil today, when the E-6 with 3 tours in Afghanistan had Howard interrupting him and asking childish questions. Then of course comes the "when I was in Vietnam" bullshit started. I wish some old crusty Vietnam Vet (or any vet) would slap him in his dick sucker. I also disagree with Howard's "Every veteran is a hero" theory. I knew some real pieces of shit, that we actually a detriment to the military when I was in.

    I'm no vet, but I find it offensive.

    A lot of the Vietnam Howie stuff is hilarious. When he makes real comments about the war however, it slips how ignorant he is on the war and it gets tiresome quick.

    It's stupid and unfunny...Howard's bigger goal is to passive aggressively make fun of the military men while also praising their bravery. I'm sure he agrees with John Kerry's statement that "those that don't study get stuck in Iraq." What makes Howard, Howard is he's an asshole and used to shit on everybody. Now his Hollywood friends and kiss asses are free from insults.

    Disagree totally.


    Been listening to howard for 25 years he has always been very supportive of the military. Even Hollywood Howie is supportive. He's making a joke. You anti-PC people wet your panties if anyone gets upset about being called the n-word. What howard does is even less offensive

    I remember some military guy on the WUS saying it was insensitive. Of course Gary and Hein completely ignored him and changed the subject, just like they do whenever anything negative is said about Howard.

    You're probably too young to have seen the movie Time Bandits.

    I never took it as disrespectful. I always thought it was funny.

    As a matter of fact when he used to ask if women and children counted towards his kill total I think he was doing that purposely so people would get that it was all a joke.
