    Shades of future pasts.

    A letter from Jason Gilson, US military, before being disabled in an ambush:
    "I really miss being in the states. Some of the American public have no idea how much freedom costs and who the people are that pay that awful price. I think sometimes people just see us as nameless and faceless and not really as humans. ... A good portion of us are actually scared that when we come home, for those of us who make it back, that there will be protesters waiting for us and that is scary."
    On the Fourth, Jason faced his worst fear.
    It was such a public humiliation -- home front insult after battlefield injury.
    Walking the parade route with his mom, younger siblings and politically conservative friends, Jason heard words from the crowd that felt like a thousand daggers to the heart.
    "Baby killer!"
    "Murderer!"
    "Boooo!"
    This isn’t a scene from Viet Nam times, although it could be. This event occurred july 4, 2004 at Bainbridge Island (Seattle) Wasington. It’s happening today.

    I am afraid that if that chit were to start up again, I would turn terrorist. How about a stink bomb, right in the middle of the protesters. Or water ballon bombs from near by buildings. Could release a couple of angry skunks in the middle of their protest.

    I had to go through that krepe when I came back from Nam, and it sure doesn't feel good. And then people wonder why there were so many Viet Nam vets that went nutzoid and took out a lot of people.

    Really this type of crap makes me want to go with monix on this one. I for one am against the reasons for the war, but it doesnt mean I dont support our troops. I support them eventually coming home in something other than a bodybag and being respected for what they did. These kind of people make protestors look bad. Yeah, they are exersizing their freedom of speech, but in very poor taste.
