Military tributes usually have strong support here on Motifake. Too bad there isn't much support from the govt.

And I generally stay away from the political ones; I'm not argumentative enough. :P I liked this one, though. Wish it wasn't anon.

I heard various versions of that my whole Navy career. Still holds true today....even more so in fact...

I always thought it went 'We the UNwilling, etc...'

It's a volunteer force, PM. I know I'm willing to fight the wars we're in. (I'm not fond of having to fight but I'd rather shoulder it than leaving the problem for my kids to fight later)

TOC, there is nothing political about supporting the military troops. Along with Police and Firemen, they serve and defend this nation with their very lives.

Yeah, but it was supposedly written on a army base wall in Viet Nam. There was a draft on at that time, and a lot of the soldiers were draftees, hence the unwilling part.

Excellent point. I was looking at it from the current relevance but you are correct in the context of where it is reportedly written. v/r

This was written in chalk above the body of a soldier lying on a table at a field hospital south of Da Nang. It was ph**ographed by a journalist from Reuters shortly after the Tet offensive
