Yes, I can believe it Mike.  This kind of thing has happened all over the nation.  Here in Texas the University of Texas is trying to run off the ROTC program.  So far the state hasn't let them.  But in places like Harvard they have been able to run off the ROTC. 

These things are done by people who have never really had their own freedom threatened, (despite their rhetoric) and therefore can afford the luxury of abstract thinking that is beyond the scope of reality.  Unfortunately such people are never likely to understand the need for a credible deterrent until it becomes too late. 

I understand your frustration and often wish that people with such shallow understanding of the price of liberty could be forced to live in a place like Vietnam that doesn't have complete freedom, so they might learn a better and more responsible appreciation of it.  But alas, that will never happen and the diseases of the indulged are destined to spread like a cancer. 

However, some of us do appreciate our Marines!  Semper Fi !

This site is all about honoring those who served in Vietnam (particularly but we like all who serve), like you and RR.   No matter what is coming out of their ears LOL

Everyone is welcome to come,  enjoy the music, and participate in the forums,  But this is a tribute site and we like appropriate decorum for this Smiley

This article really hit me as strange.  The article places a lot of emphasis on blogging.  I have never read an article in any other newspaper that gave blogging anymore than just a superficial mention, yet here it has emphasis.  Clearly in SF they see bloggers as some form of boogie man.  That truly surprised me. 

Life is different in California.   Stoner  We all know that.  They are not like the rest of us.  Especially in Berkeley.  It is best not to get too worked up over these kinds of things.  We are never going to be able to change how they think out there, even if we tried.  So it is best to just ignore them and not get too worked up over them.  After all, what they want is for us to get worked up over their noise making. 

Unfortunately the Marines must protect everyone's rights.  Even fools.

Well, I love my Vietnam vets and it is not difficult for me to see the importance of people like you in defending it.  Those people in Berkely just don't have a clue and never will.

I sent the article to a couple of active duty Marines and they reacted the same as you. LOL

 I wouldn't call it a rant. Smiley

From the looks of some of those aging protestors - the woman and the grey haired dude - I'd say they're Peter Pan types, still stuck in the 60s protest movement, not having moved on with their lives. Stoner There are no doubt a lot of those in Berkeley, including in the local government, just like there are in Boulder.

MIKE,

Looked at your profile trying to see when you were in the Nam.  Tried to send this as a Private Message but didn't have any success so I post it here.

I'm Army, was Platoon Leader in Big Red One, 1/28th July 1967 thru Sep 17, 1967 (wounded in left elbow this day)

Recouped in Hospital in Japan and returned to the Nam in Dec 1967.  Was again wounded, Leg and Chest during Tet of '68 (Feb 15th).  This one was a "golden ticket" home.

Disability Retired from Army as a Capt in Apr 1969.

THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE. 

Hope everything is well with you and yours.

KEN
