    I learn someone has served in the military and I think, "Gee, they did something really good for their country," but then they act like a big dick constantly...Do we have to be nice to them? Maybe they saw some sort of action and they are all screwed up inside now and can't help but be a jerk.

    I have friends who were in the military that were really nice and I know a few that were assholes. Pretty much I htink it's the same as the general population and people suck.

    We don't join the military for your respect. Don't worry about it.

    And yes, I think people that served in the armed forces deserve respect.

    You should be nice to them because they served their country and leave it at that but probably only around 2% of military members see any kind of combat.

    Like Ridic Too is always shitty to me and he said the other day he was in Iraq. I just assumed if anyone's been to Iraq that I should be nice to them but he is a complete asshole.
