In response to David Duncan's letter, titled "Don't hurt morale."
Most Americans don't understand the true hardships of being out of the country fighting with the U.S. military. However, you can't allow one person's slighted views to change the views you have. We have to notice that the person who wrote the questionably harmful letter was doing so from somewhere other than America. A place where said individual ran to in hopes of finding a more secure environment in which to raise a child. Let those kind of people who throw mud from across the fence enjoy their tyrannical views. After all, isn't that what the military is in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect?
Honor, courage, commitment.
