    The M.A.T. (Military Appreciation Thread)



    This being the 1,000th post, figured it warranted something a little more special with a little more meaning.

    With Lefty's passing, a moment of reflection seems appropriate.

    Beyond Memorial Day or even Veteran's day for that matter, let this be an ongoing place where we can come to share stories both first-hand and second-hand. To show honor, appreciation and respect to each of our respective militaries through words, music, pictures or anything. A place to list who in your life, as a member of the military, has impacted you personally. Whether we know it or not we are all affected directly or indirectly, and touched by someone in the military. Without these brave young men and women both active and retired or in reserve and those no longer with us, no one in the "free world" would be enjoying such relative peace and freedom without them. Regardless of your political view, your views on war, the view of the U.S. specifically, or the military in general, especially with respect to DADT...People in the military make huge sacrifices: not spending time with family, their spouse, children, in the end many make the ultimate selfless sacrifice with their very own lives. You don't have to name them, just who they are to you and where they are or were in the military. But They definitely deserve much respect and appreciation.




    I will start this off with listing the people in my life who were or are members.
    Growing up a military brat, many of my friends and family were members of various branches. Thinking back, I realize how much our military has impacted my life and how many people I have lost.

    My grandfather (RIP)- Air Force
    My father-Navy, retired
    Uncle-Air Force, retired
    Uncle-Army, retired
    Cousin-Navy, retired
    Former roommate\close buddy\fwb-Air Force, retired
    Brother-in-law-Army, retired
    Brother-in law's father-Air Force, retired
    Ex-brother-in-law-Air Force, retired
    Childhood friend-Army, retired
    Childhood friend-Army, retired
    Childhood friend-Army
    Close friend-Airforce, retired
    Buddy-Air Force
    Friend-Air Force
    Friend-Army
    Friend (RIP)-Army
    Friend (RIP)-Air Force
    Friend (RIP)-Army
    Friend (RIP)-Army
    Friend (RIP)-Air Force

    Though the dynamics of some relationships can be complex at best, these men in my life who have served and sacrificed will always have my respect and gratitude for protecting my life and defending my country. Thank You.

    An appropriate and grateful thread recognizing Service.

    My family traces its roots in this country to the Anne's landing at Plymouth in 1623.

    Three more ships traveled to Plymouth soon after the Mayflower, including the Fortune (1621), the Anne and the Little James (both 1623). Passengers on these first four ships were called the "Old Comers" of Plymouth Colony, and were given special treatment in later colonial affairs.

    My sister has the complete family history from then forward and it is replete with service to this country, the Union and the Confederacy. I thank them all.

    Re: The Military Appreciation Thread.

    Thank you to all who have served and sacrificed for our freedom.

    My friends, the straight couple I housekeep for, He's former Navy, and she's former Marine. Thing is, she's all of 5ft 6, and honestly doesn't look like much. ( I love telling this story...) But one day, while she's at work (she's a store manager for a beauty goods/cosmetics store) having a particularly rotten day... Now mind you, this store's location is in a not-so-nice neighborhood. So, one morning, when she was already having a bad day that day and running the store by herself until lunch, during the 11am hour, this big tall guy comes in, and goes behind the counter, where they keep their high-dollar merchandise. She's like, "Hey, what are you doing?" The guy shouts back, "I'm gonna cut you and take all the money!"

    /facepalm... He shouldn't have done that. Oh, god damn, he shouldn't have done that.

    With all that had went on that day, she'd already had a lot on her plate, and on her mind, and now this motherfucker was gonna try and rob the place. And that's when the Marine inside her just clicked.

    Oh. Hell. No.

    They keep some store-use utility scissors underneath the cash register. After the robber made his threat, the Marine inside fired right back, "Bitch, I'ma cut you!!!" as she rared back and threatened him with the store-use scissors. He actually wasn't expecting that, and it spooked him. He immediately ran out of the store, and she called the cops. When the cops got there and took her statement, she explained that she scared him off with a pair of scissors. The cops were like oO, and had this look of absolute perturbment on their faces. Then, she explained that she's ex-Marine. They're like, Oh...OK...

    For like a month straight, her employees were scared of her, and scared to piss her off. Her boyfriend and I were so proud of her, though. She will cut a bitch!

    The history nerd in me salivates with what a rich story your family history must have been, very cool.

    Elmo, congratulations on your 1,000th post.

    And I add my gratitude to those who have sacrificed for country, be they the war dead, or teachers, or ACLU lawyers, or doctors, or social workers, or foreign service diplomats.

    To all those who serve the greater good to make the nation a better home.

    I will forever be humbled by the bravery and sacrifice so many men and women have given so the rest of us would have a better world to live in. I salute and thank every one of them....past, present and future.

    I especially want to salute the men and women who served in Vietnam. I was there at the end working to evacuate Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia...we helped as many people as we could get out and took them to an island in the Philippines. By the time I was out people had long since stopped spitting on the men and women who had served. My heart broke for those guys and the damage we did to them as a nation.

    Re: The Military Appreciation Thread.

    A branch of our military that can often go unnoticed, easily forgotten, rarely ever thanked, laughed off and some wouldn't even consider it part of the military... The United States Coast Guard. For this day, to honor one of our very own, our "prancing pony", former member of the USCG...










    The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven U.S. uniformed services.
    Founded by Alexander Hamilton as the Revenue Marine first, and later as the Revenue Cutter Service on 4 August 1790, it is the United States' oldest continuous seagoing service.
    The Coast Guard received its present name through an act of Congress signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson on 28 January 1915 that merged the Revenue Cutter Service with the U.S. Life-Saving Service, and provided the nation with a single maritime service dedicated to saving life at sea and enforcing the nation's maritime laws



    The Coast Guard Core Values:
    Honor: Integrity is our standard. We demonstrate uncompromising ethical conduct and moral behavior in all of our personal actions. We are loyal and accountable to the public trust.
    Respect: We value our diverse workforce. We treat each other with fairness, dignity and compassion. We encourage individual opportunity and growth. We encourage creativity through empowerment. We work as a team.
    Devotion to Duty: We are professionals, military and civilian, who seek responsibility, accept accountability, and are committed to the successful achievement of our organizational goals. We exist to serve. We serve with pride.





    The Coast Guard Ethos:
    I am a Coast Guardsman.
    I serve the people of the United States.
    I will protect them.
    I will defend them.
    I will save them.
    I am their shield.
    For them I am Semper Paratus.
    I live the Coast Guard core values.
    I am proud to be a Coast Guardsman.
    We are the United States Coast Guard

    Too many years at sea may have waterlogged your brain. (j/K)

    Though traditionally, Memorial Day was called Decoration Day and celebrated on May 30th, until June 28, 1968 with the passing of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, this thread is meant to garner ongoing recognition to all military both here and elsewhere on and off the boards, rather than just only on occasion as part of a holiday.

    Cheers.

    You appreciate the idea of an entire service academy having their Plebes climb a hu-gantuous phallic symbol that is greased up as a sign of accomplishment of training?

    It is rather Dominate / Submisive.

    That's how future Active Duty and Sean Cody models are recruited. Does the Navy have a rule that they all have to first shave each-other before they climb the rock? It can't be that not a single recruit can't grow some chest hair by freshman year.

    Starting Strong

    New reality series starting tonight called Starting Strong.
    Follows new potential recruits through their decision on joining the Army.
    Airs tonight (Sunday) on select Fox affiliates.








    ...a 10-part reality-style television series that follows young civilians, male and female, as they work side-by-side with real Soldiers in order to gain a better understanding of the Army.

    After they've had ample time to see what Army life is really like, they decide for themselves if it's something they want to do.

    The show, a partnership between the Army and Ricky Schroder Productions, debuts June 2, 2013, on 16 FOX affiliates across the country.
    http://www.army.mil/article/104594





    Since it's only airing on certain Fox channels not all, here is the first episode.

    Re: The M.A.T. (Military Appreciation Thread)

    Have just watched the Air Force episode , i found it so "riveting" , i was a "Reserve" in The Royal Air Force , Partly guilt , partly revenge............ , and full of "righteous piss" , i also wanted to see where my guy died .

    After Helmand and after my shame at the thought of revenge i resigned my Commission .
    I saw the bravery of these guys and girls 1st hand , it can and is a very thankless task at times .

    ^yw.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, Medic.

    I've been there (re:all your feelings). I've lost many to the service.
    Once you see the hero in those you've lost, your heart gets bigger, you see their sacrifice through their eyes. That humble heart is what strengthens your eternal bond with them, giving you a fire to have a passion for life and not take things or those around you for granted.

    It does get better.

    I work at testing those who desire to enlist in our services. I swear I never looked so young. I am but one of several stations around the nation. We see 100 person floor counts daily. My heart swells.

    Since the conversation has drifted to the flyboys let me do a little course correction...







    Stand Navy out to sea. Fight our battle cry!
    We'll never changed our course, so vicious foes steer shy-y-y-y
    Roll out the TNT. Anchors aweigh. Sail on to victory!
    And sink their bones to Davy Jones! Hooray!!!
    Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.

    ^Would have to agree there Mr. Birdman. excellent.

    I have much love for all our military, the Navy however, has a special place in my heart though.
    (in x-rays, it shows as a big, black, blotchy spot)

    Submariners are a special breed (possibly in-bred), and quite sexy at that.


    ^(shameless)


    What you guys do is truly insane (as Martha would say, a good thing).

    Not only do you have my gratitude for doing your duty
    You have my utmost respect for being a dolphin in the silent service.

    Humbled.

    I can remember the first time I dove on a submarine.

    A) It was just after the yards where several 20 foot by 20 foot holes had been cut in the hull then welded shut.
    B) It was from the same pier that the Thresher and the Scorpion had departed from at the same shipyard. (Thresher and the Scorpion are on eternal patrol as the only US Nuclear submarines ever lost at sea)
    C) I was green as hell and understood nothing about the boat.
    D) After we dove because of a valve line up, salt water started pouring into my rack.....lol I shit a circle around myself.

    Still I know what family is and I know who my brothers are... forevermore.

    I started a thread about the VIRTUAL VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL - you can follow the link, then click on a state, and look for your city, and see who died in service to this years-long effort.

    THIS WILL, FOR MOST OF YOU, BE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED ONE OR TWO GENERATIONS BEFORE YOUR GENERATION, as this [undeclared] war had already sown its initial seeds more than fifty years ago, and I believe that scattered deaths had already started.

    This certainly can't be considered as CURRENT events...but it certainly involved politics, and warfare is a nasty job. For whatever reasons, whether or not the troops really knew the reasons for what they were doing (or, worse, those who were forcibly drafted and could not see any reason at all for this long nightmare), I have always had utmost admiration for Vietnam veterans.

    Oh...I guess a link could be helpful. http://www.justusboys.com/forum/thre...who-is-honored

    Re: The M.A.T. (Military Appreciation Thread)

    Yep, like one poster said, all I can do is express my gratitude. While I may be gay and have/had my issues with Don't Ask, etc, that's never influenced the way I view the military. "The single greatest force for good in the world."

    I find it interesting the way many gay people view the military. First of all, the military is not some monolith like people think it is. I have cousins serving in the army; there are many progressive people in the military (many gay people as well!). And whether someone is liberal or conservative makes no difference-- these are people who have given up their lives, spent time away from their family, made sacrifices most of us would scarcely even consider, to defend their country. Our country. I'm sorry, you can complain as much as you want about how the U.S. is intolerant, anti-gay, etc, but look around the world: there's nowhere else I'd rather be living as a gay man than the U.S./Canada/Western Europe/Australia. Yes, I've met some guys in the military who are homophobic, but what impresses me is that, while they may be homophobic, they put their lives on the line knowing full well that one of the liberties they're defending is our right to be gay. Something about that seems very selfless to me. We may not all agree with one another, but at the end of the day, we respect our mutual right to exist.

    I didn't mean to approach the issue of military appreciation just from the point of gay-related issues, but I think there's a real disconnect between a lot of gays and the military. It's so wonderful to see a Military Appreciation Thread in a gay forum. It shouldn't be surprising, but it is.

    PS: An uncle of mine died in Vietnam. frankfrank, I will be sure to check out the virtual memorial site. Thank you for that link!
