Comments: Coward

It doesn't make you a coward. You do your part and they do theirs. Say thank you and they will thank you for what you do. Everybody needs somebody... wait... that was a commercial for something else...

Recognizing the limitations held within one's self is not cowardice -- it is wisdom.

A "coward" throws others under the bus in order to escape a situation -- simply changing your mind and your situation is not the same. Period.
So you were in the military for a while and you left. Good! Life if full of experiences! No need to steep in any sort of guilt...

Choosing your own path takes cojones. And one can be honorable and brave in many ways -- a uniform isn't necessarily required.... 'Nuff said.

Thanks for the reality check guy's. That's one of the examples of the things that I keep in my own head for too long. Nothing like a good drunk on a Saturday evening to get you blogging crap stuff like this.

You just got a bad assignment. You would've made a great Nuke, because Nukes are EXPECTED to vigilantly question authority at all times.

Anyway, if you made it past boot camp and go to your first duty station, you're a vet in my book.

It's the basic training no-shows, washouts, and troublemakers that I don't count.

Sometimes it takes a bigger person to realize they can't do something than it does to try and do something they can't.

I spent 20 years in the Navy, and told lots of young sailors that maybe getting out was the best option for them. The military isn't for everyone, but hell, at least you tried.

Have a great day.
