    They voted for trump because trump brought trolling people, no matter how noble into being acceptable. Their only crime - disagreeing with their methods and views.

    Yes. Absolutely. It is rare in warfare for individual soldiers to surrender to the other side successfully. They usually end up dead instead. Most POW's are created by a mass surrender of one side to the other. Whether that comes from a failure of leadership, planning, or execution of plans, it happens. One exception to this in modern warfare is found in aerial combat. This often takes place over enemy territory, and when the aircraft being piloted is shot down (eg., fails to complete its mission) the pilot (and crew) often survives and is captured.

    In every case, it is failure at the heart of how POW's come to be. You don't become a POW because you won the battle or the war.

    If you pin a medal on a POW for becoming one, you are rewarding failure. That doesn't mean you should penalize those that became POW's not through their own volition either. They were just unfortunate enough to end up captured. That happens in war.
    Surviving his plane being shot down is not failure. It's easy for people who have never risked their lives to keep this nation free to sit in judgement - like trump and now you.

    Seems you're pretty good at hurling insults. A sure sign of insecurity. You can always disavow your posts trashing war heroes.

    The attitude towards people who are defending our nation is disgusting.

    I salute ANY American who has put themselves into harm's way to protect me, my family & my country.

    The causes haven't always been just. Vietnam was a terrible conflict, that we never should have been in. But the soldiers who fought it? They get my respect, and my gratitude, and my admiration. It's not something I could do, and I am immensely grateful for their service & sacrifice.

    There are 4 or 5 military bases withing walking distance of me. I constantly talk with our soldiers and sailors. They laugh and brag about making a career off the taxpayer teat.

    There has been a spike in suicides these past 20 years. A high percent of them are military.

    Those aren’t the ones we’re talking about in this thread. I hope they never have to be a veteran of a foreign war.
