HUGH HEWITT WRITES, “There are, it seems, two categories of civilians“:
Those who know what they owe to the military, and those who don’t. I am in the former category, perhaps because I married into a family of Marines and have heard a more than a few stories of sacrifice and loss. Bloggers who presume to play in these fields should be careful to note where they stand. Feel free to question the president’s statements and policies, as I do Kerry’s, but it would be wise to leave off on questioning the president’s service if you haven’t, as they saying goes, walked the walk.
Makes a nice counterbalance to the “chickenhawk” argument, as well.
