Why do people expect the troops to be treated like celebrities when one is unfortunately killed? Pictures like this have been floating around for a while now and many people agree with them. Now I don't know if this is unpatriotic or not, but I think these things are a bit overdone. I myself have not joined the military, but have much respect for anyone who is enlisted. But my view is, people who join the military know their risks and don't join for the fame. They join to fight for their freedom. Can I say this is correct? People who die fighting for their country should get all the attention they deserve, but this shouldn't mean people have to bash others fame because of accomplishments they made.

Please, Please, Please don't take any of this the wrong way. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks guys!...
What you describe is the dark, false side of patriotism. There is a title for it, I just can't remember it for the moment. Jingoism?

What pisses me off is that the media and our population treat these celebrities like they were about to cure cancer. Yes, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, and Whitney Huston were talented performers, but they were also drug addicts and a pedophile.

I don't think its that we want to be treated the same, we just want more than "and in other news, more soldiers died in Afghanistan."

I agree wholeheartedly with everyone in here.

That said, I hate ****ing service members that post attention grabbing bull**** like that. A family member, a civilian that feels that way, fine, post away. But if you are in the military and post **** like that your a self cock sucking attention whore.

For whatever you join, it sure wasn't to be a rock star, and it wasn't for the attention, so stop filling facebook with so much "look at me, I'm in the army, oh woe is me, no one cares about me" ****.

Most of the people that do that have never been deployed, and if they were they were never in any real danger. Yet these ****ers are the ones posting that pic, or making wall posts about service to your country and valor and other gay crap when they were so far removed from actual war fighting it's sickening they have such a high opinion of their own self.

I post things on my face book page, mostly because I dont want to let people forget that there are men and women over there holding the wall and they deserve a prayer or a thought and maybe that will influance them to be a more active role.

^lulz. I've told so many people that fluoride is bad for them when ingested and they just laugh and tell me I'm crazy and that I'm wrong...I tell them to go research it(which they never do)...I guess they've drank too much tap water and the fluoride has had its desired effect.

This is pretty much why I posted this thread. These photos are plastered all over Facebook from kids I graduated with that are acting like their **** don't stink. They have been in the forces for less than a year and they seem to be acting like they forgot where they came from. Posts like "I can't believe you people whining over so-and-so when " " did this for his country. When 6 months earlier before we graduated they are flinging paper across the room and drawing dicks inside textbooks.

I dont mind the occasional, and for you it's by all means alright as it's not a self-serving reason.

What I'm talking about are lower enlisted that only post that stuff to seek attention and to try and line up some ****s to bang when home on leave.

Like the guys walking through the mall during the middle of the day in uniform hundreds of miles from a military installation.

Yes and it's so much classier of you to be cynically judgmental of them and put them down to complete strangers on the internet.

You act like that changes when you get in. I've drawn some pretty funny dicks in the guard tower. The fire breathing dick dragon being fought by the dick man with his dick shield and dick sword were great.
