I would never look down on anyone for not joining the armed forces-- It is a lifestyle that takes a lot of getting used to and requires lots of sacrifice and a certain level of physical and mental stamina and discipline.
I know each person has their own circumstances to consider before deciding whether or not to join and I since I hadn't even been born when Nam ended, I can't really guess what the personal or social variables were at the time for any of you elderstatesmen.
Rest assured, my platoon and all my fellow Marines appreciate everything you do to support us.
Oh yeah, and without the veterans who came before us, we would be nothing. Thank you for serving. We can never fully repay you for your efforts.
