If you didn’t see combat, you didn’t serve the nation.

Recently, I came across one of the most ignorant statements I have ever read. According to this genius, if you didn’t see combat, you didn’t serve the nation. He was intent on attacking me, but in the process, this buffoon of a human being insulted hundreds of thousands of American Service members who would lay their lives on the line for this country.

I was told that I didn’t provide context, and I misunderstood what was said. This is the exact post. Did I misunderstand?

You know, you know I had to address this dude on this matter. Service comes in many forms, and though I am aware that we are jerking each other off on Facebook, I decided to speak on this.

In addition to this I address a statement by someone who believes that I hate this country, has the nerve, audacity, and gall, to question my service to the nation.
