    I thought that we had an all volunteer army, don't we, not comprised of lower middle class children??? I don't agree with this war either, but we are there and must see it finished one way or another. Just didn't want to let this comment slip by. Thanks.

    You see, in America they have nochoice, they were MADE to go into the military. They were preyed upon by evil Army recruiters in a treacherous plot devised by the US Government.

    The comment angered me too.

    We never had to go there from the 1st place-Osama Bin Laden was in Afgan'n -not Iraq. There were no connections between Saddam and Osama-we lost valuable time and resources going into Iraq. Are we safer? Where? $200 Billion in debt and almost 1000 fine young soldiers have died. We all know now no WMD.Out only reason to go there in the 1st place.

    Hi- Sorry for your anger. That is true-we have volunteer service-not so when I served-DRAFT then. I have strong recollections of WAR. War should only be the VERY last choice used only after all other means are exhausted. I did not see that in Iraq and still do not. No WMD -our only reason stated for invading! I felt, as many Vets do,that we lost our focus on terrorism-by not continuing to pursue Osama Bin Laden-who killed nearly 3000 americans on 9/11. So I am angry also-but not at you-at 1) Bin Laden 2) at the administration who failed to keep the hunt on for Bin Laden.--Mike

    A valid point, but does not address my statement about the lower middle class as soldiers. We have a volunteer army. My sons are soldiers and both have college degrees. Sorry if you did not get my point. You quote me and completely go off on another tangent???

    Anne I misunderstood your original post-in its entirety it is very clear now-the stats are around 70% from the income level described so I stand by my numbers.Contrast this to vietnam-the mix was across the board-poor,middle and upper. I don't have the web-link to this stats at this time but I can provide them if you like.Have a good night-sorry for any confusion-and I SALUTE your sons for their military service.I am pro-vet and an american legion member. Maybe I can sign your sons up when they get out. Mike
