What would you have done after the World Trade Center was attacked? I am not mocking you I would just like to know if there was a better solution no one thought of.

No. I'm a pacifist, I'd be pretty useless in the military and if they brought the draft back and I was drafted I would flat out refuse to serve...I'd rather go to jail. I simply do not believe in fighting where innocent people get killed.

So how do you feel about the World Trade Center being attacked? Would you have preferred the US just let it go?

I have been serving my country since 1988 and have been deployed to Iraq 3x going on 4. Personally, I think if you wont fight for your country then you should move to Canada and lose your citizenship. And being a pacifist is just a poor excuse for a coward! And as for it being a waste of time? WOW! I tell you what, go tell that to the US Soldiers that are fighting to keep our country safer right now and see the reaction you get, probably shot!

Thank you so much for your daily sacrifice, I know sometimes it must be very hard for you, so thank you. I'm a little ticked that the Sooners lost the game this year... BOOMER SOONERS! (Don't tell my fellow Texans, lol!)

I was in the Army. I planned on serving for six years, however, I fell out of a moving truck and shattered my kneecap so they gave made me take a medical discharge.

Javelin - Javelin
I would join the army if the war was over, but right now I wouldent because its so dangerous...if there was no war, i'd join happily. Nice pick of the javelin.

I like the javelin what can I say. :) But just so all of you are aware, this war has had less casualties than any other American led war in the history of the US.

whats the point of being willing to serve your country if you aren't willing to die for her.

I'm with you sndcain, being in the military is one of the most honorable professions to choose, it's right next to teaching because it's that important. Thank you for your sacrifice very much.

I would serve in diplomatic peace talks instead of holding weapons in military, and carrying them more efficiently with no selfish motives. World would be alot better place if there can exist some respect between rich countries and poor ones, major religions and minor ones.

If I were younger, I would have enlisted. I know most people seem to have forgotten the anger we felt when the Twin Towers were destroyed. I haven't.

There must be precious few of us willing to defend our freedoms. I personally believe if you aren't willing to defend them, maybe you shouldn't have them.

Yes I would. I am proud of my country and all it stands for. I love my freedom and and all the rights that come with it. I would serve in the military if they needed me in a heartbeat.

I agree, when I found out I was pregnant with my son, my dreams of being a marine became dreams of providing a good life for my son. I think now though, I'm too much of a wimp, they probably wouldn't have wanted me anyways, lol. :)

I'm in the process of either joining the Navy or the Coast Guard now. I'm still a little torn as to which way to go. The Coast Guard is no longer under the Dept of Defense but is now under Homeland Security. I still consider it a very viable branch of the military.

I was active duty Air Force and my husband is in the Army...currently on his way home from a deployment to Iraq (YIPPEE!!!) and we are proud of serving our country. This is a great nation and we stand for great things. Sometimes we may get upset at what the politicians do but we still have our american values. I am proud to be a veteran of the United States Air Force...I love our country.

Hi, of course I would because I love my Homeland. It's where me and my family live, and I'll defend it always. However, I hope it won't be necessary...
