If I may.

I feel that at least one of your statements can use a bit of clarification.

It is true that the bulk of foot soldiers are not from society's upper-echelons. It is also true that in Afghanistan and Iraq it's just as likely you'll end up dead if you wear a "grunts" stripes or a Captain's Bars.

Not all of us who serve (or, as in my case, served) were from poor families or backgrounds. Many are just patriots, who learned the harsh reality that you serve whomever is in office regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the policy of the day.

I applaud you for supporting the troops themselves, be they American or Canadian. They and their families sacrifice much to make our lives a better one.
