Do Anti-War Nuts Think This is Classy?

WE owe a great deal to those who serve this nation in its defense. Men and women have volunteered to serve in the armed forces to protect America, and many have given the ultimate sacrifice in their service. But there are those who could care less. These are the antiwar zealots that just do not get what it means to sacrifice. Michael Yon tips readers off to incidents that have been occurring in Washington, DC:

Dept of Transportation Federal Transit Administration sends:

Recently, there have been local incidents in which military personnel have been verbally assaulted while commuting on the Metro. Uniformed members have been approached by individuals expressing themselves as anti-government, shouting anti-war sentiments, and using racial slurs against minorities.

In one instance, a member was followed onto the platform by an individual who continued to berate her as she exited themetro station. Thus far, these incidents have occurred in the vicinity of the Reagan National Airport and Eisenhower Ave metro stations on the yellow line, however, military members should be vigilant and aware of their surroundings at all times while in mass transit.

Should you be approached by any individuals expressing anti-government/anti-war sentiments, or any other types of direct verbal assault, immediately notify your local police jurisdiction. If riding metro, exit the train at the next stop, distance yourself from the individual, and notify the Metro Transit Police Department.

For this and any other suspicious activity, NGB personnel are also asked to notify the Pentagon Command Center at (703)697-1001, and the NGB Antiterrorism/Force Protection Officer, MSgt Cyril Charity, at (703)607-2396 or (571)239-1109 (after duty hours).

Here are a few friendly reminders of personal protective measures that can help you to stay safe:

-If possible, do not commute in uniform (military members)

-Do not display DoD building passes, "hot cards", or personal identification in open view outside of the workplace

-Do not discuss specifics about your occupation to outside solicitors

-Always try to remain in well lit, well populated train cars if traveling via metro

-Be vigilant at all times!

Colonel Austin Bay has related thoughts here. I find it disgusting as we prepare to head into the Memorial Day weekend that these antiwar nuts do not at least have the class to show some respect for the same people who have taken up the cause to protect this nation and our rights. We all have a right to speak out, and disagree with one another on issues. But at some point there comes a time where disagreement turns into abuse, and it is clear that these people seem to relish in abusing the soldiers who make up the first line of defense for our nation.

Do us a favor here. This weekend, tell a soldier how much you respect them and thank them for their service. Without them, this nation would not be here. Without them to keep the wolves back, we would be victims of our enemies machinations. Show the military the respect they deserve. Show the antiwar moonbats the class they lack.
