I think it's cute that I'm being called a pogue. For those attempting to use half of their brain they would realize I'm barred from serving in the infantry, etc. It's a shame that soldiers who have served in support roles continue to get shit on. Truth is, the infantry wouldn’t be able to accomplish some of their missions without the help of support soldiers. Every time I went outside the wire I carried my M16 and ammo. I can’t tell you why I wasn’t shot at, blown up, etc…but I know I served honorably and that’s all that matters.
I could be my typical self and tell the haters (some of my fellow veterans) to fuck off but instead I’d like to thank you for your service. I respect everyone who has served regardless of their MOS. I hope one day you find the maturity to do the same.
