    You don't have to support the war to support the troops. It is not their fault that we are engaging in an illegal war for our governments hidden agendas. Vote for Ron Paul the only candidate who will bring your brother home ASAP.

    I completely support the troops and I completely detest this war. I joined the Marine Corps in 2005 because I felt the hippie culture should be represented and I felt like I could maybe make some sort of substantial change if I had access to the inside, and I promise I was not the only one. Maybe your brother is one of these? Support his involvement; you're brother is in a unique position to be able to protest decisions on the front line if he has the guts and doens't mind a little brig time, but imagine if the masses started refusing to fight over there! With enough support, the troops could maybe help send themselves home.

    I don't know, it's probably all too far fetched, wishful thinking. But a girl can dream, can't she?

    (BTW, I was only in for a year because I broke my feet and they wouldn't heal at all for MONTHS.)

    It wasn't too bad! It got me out!

    It's really not a cool story. I was walking across a bridge right on the edge, and my right foot rolled off funny and broke (?!?) but I didn't tell anybody until a month and a half later when the other one broke because of the change in pressure. So, yeah... I wish it was something hard core, but no such luck!
