SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
Soldiers are NOT heroes. They are working stiffs just like the rest of us. They are doing NOTHING to "protect our freedom" here at home. They agreed to the conditions of employment to which they volunteered and are being compensated for. Nothing more. STOP all of this BULLSHIT HERO WORSHIP about soldiers.

I assume the OP is from the UK or Australia

I agree with the OP..people get into the military for two reasons

1) the recruiter fools them into signing up

2) they need a job, an education and a place they can belong too

to be fair to them most of them end up very unsuccessful in life (3/4 homeless are veterans) and usually end up blowing the money the government pays them on something stupid like a bass boat or a fast car. They also have many health problems and of course they can get killed.


People join the military out of stupidity and desperation, getting called Heroes by the local simpletons back home is at least so consolation for their wasted life.

Re: SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
I am an American. And, I served in the military. I wasn't a hero then and our soldiers now ARE NOT HEROES. They are simply going to "work" every day and getting paid to do their "job". That is it. Soldiers are doing NOTHING to "protect our freedoms" here in the USA. It's all bullshit.bump

See, they need people to keep believing this though so we can continue to send our "heroes" into the meat/dollar grinder that is "The War on Terror".

Agreed 100%.

Volunteering for the military doesn't make you hero. Killing a bunch of primitives with overpowering technological and tactical advantages doesn't make you a hero either.

Landing on D-Day...now that's heroic.

Re: SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
I saw a young black guy on the news being interviewed on CNN. He was helping his neighbors remove debris in New Jersey and still dealing with power outages.

"I want to join the Marines and be a HERO" he said.

Young man, what you are doing NOW, here at home, HELPING YOUR NEIGHBORS is HEROIC! Joining the Marine Corp. DOES NOT make you a hero.

I am so sick of this HERO WORSHIP being thrown around in this country of idiots!

Re: SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
How many of us go to work knowing that at any second we could die?

That is heroic.

How many of us go to work art a job where we know we could be called upon to give our lives to save others?

That is heroic.

How many of us go to work knowing that we may have to take the lives of men who would mutilate and kill us in some of the worst ways imaginable if they were given the chance?

That is heroic.

The anonymous coward that started this thread doesn't have the balls to face reality.

Those that serve in our Military face death in ways he cannot even fathom daily, willingly cheerfully and heroically.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

For a few maybe, but there are so many who have joined for honorable reasons, done brave things and seen a lot of shit no one should ever have to see. I do know some shitbags, but I also know some really incredible soldiers too.
