I am torn on this one. Obviously for the WW's they fought directly for our freedom. The wars now though? They aren't for our freedom and are fought for dubious/obfustacted reasons.
At the same time every guy I've ever come accross who has served in the Afghan war or Iraqi war has been a decent, stand up guy. I know they are willing to die for my way of life and that's enough for me to be grateful and to give thanks.
