You haven't answered my question, so I'll assume the answer is you have done nothing in the context of military or combat service. If that is not true, please correct my assumption.
So, I am a "tough guy" for defending a combat veteran by pointing out that you are being hypocritical (based on the above assumption) by calling him out for his comments about a Hollywood actor? An actor who equates the conditions he experienced 'on location' to the ones experienced by those in combat in Afghanistan. Sound right?
You are correct that "Lot's of veteran's live their everyday lives after serving their country and don't feel the need to flaunt it." Lots of veterans, myself included, don't flaunt it. I am damn proud of it, though.
If Boaz wants to point out that Cruise is a buffoon for making those comments, he has earned the right to do so. If you want to align yourself with Tom Cruise by judging Boaz for that, don't be surprised when you get called out as a hypocritical buffoon.
Happy Birthday Marines! To my brothers past, present and future, Semper Fi!
