life on the campaign trail felt like military life.

She clearly doesn't care if all of America knows she's a selfish idiot.......

Michelle Obama: Average American doesn't 'know much about the military'

. . . which is nice because neither does the president.  "Corpse-man", anyone?

Oh, Obama knows about the military alright. He just doesn't give a shit.

A truly disingenuous wench of the first order.
I think every person should devote two years of service to their country starting at age 18.

My mother, sisters and I would pack dozens of boxes every month for soldiers. And, it continues to this day.

Yeah - about those boxes?

Thank you!

You have no real idea how much they are appreciated. Getting one is like being a 4 year old on Christmas morning all over again. The goodies were appreciated, but the ones with a letter included were totally treasured.
Couple of guys in my old unit still regularly write to the kids who packed the ones they received.

What makes it even worse is that they try to conceal their disdain for the military with this faux support.

They are despicable human beings.  BOTH of them.

I try not to hate - it's bad for the digestion - but they do make it damned hard not to.

Hey, you take what you can get. It's faux support, but she's high enough profile to actually make better people take notice of what is going on to veterans.

Mom was president of the local VFW auxiliary, and recruited all seven of her daughters to help. In June, 1970, she gave all of us the oath, and we joined the same day. Dad was the commander at the time, too, so it was a family thing. I remember her baking dozens of zucchini breads every month, and putting them in coffee cans, using popcorn as padding.

My parents were popular with returning veterans. If you recall, the VFW refused regular membership to Vietnam vets back then, because they considered the war a 'conflict'. They were allowed a social membership, and Dad fought for full membership. He was mad as hell, and worked almost constantly to give them full status.

  • Your what hurts??
On a side note...is it not ironic that Obammy is making his own tour of the Far East while Moose just got back from hers??

Haven't seen these two together much lately, have we...??

You have awesome parents.  :beer:

The using popcorn for packing was a touch of genius! And the coffee cans would be massively appreciated too - they have like a million uses! We would hoard them. Drop a packet of silica gel in the bottom of them (obtained from ammo boxes) and you had a bug proof, water proof storage container that fits neatly in your kit. Used to keep letters in mine. Still got it on my desk - holds pens and pencils now  :laugh:

I recall hearing about the squabble over whether Vietnam was an actual war or a police action. Always seemed stupid to me. Same thing happened after Korea. So good on your Dad!
