you are so right and I wish people would have more respect for the armed forces. It is particularly tough here in uk as many are so very against the idea of the war in the middle east. it got so bad that in some military towns, people were abusing the soldiers who were in the streets in uniform. So what did their superiors do to try and solve it?-- told them not to go out in uniform into public areas. It makes me ashamed to be british (sometimes) and made me feel sick that our armed forces are made to feel ashamed of what they are doing. it sucks. I must add, it is still a minority of the UK public that behave like that, it isn't the norm but even if a small amount of people are doing it, that is too many. The armed forces should feel proud of themselves for doing such an important job that so many of us could not do, because we are not strong enough. Me included! I think we are all in their debt and people like Spc. Kenneth W. Haines shold be celebrated!
