    Dear Civilians, We know that the current state of affairs in our great
    nation have many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military. For
    those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of
    the areas we would like your assistance:

    1) The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat) during the
    playing of the National Anthem ... kick their ***.

    2) When you witness firsthand someone burning the American Flag in
    protest... kick their ***.

    3) Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest
    amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise,
    quietly pull them aside and explain how these Veterans fought for the very
    freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices
    these Veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a
    Disabled Veteran kicks their ***.

    4) (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were.
    Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDU's), telling others that you used to be
    "Special Forces," and collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay if
    you were still seven. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your
    *** kicked.

    5) Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, "Do you
    fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance
    deserves an *** kicking (children are exempt).

    6) If you witness someone calling the U.S. Coast Guard non military, inform
    them of their mistake...and kick their ***.

    7) Roseanne Barr's singing of the National Anthem is not a blooper...it was
    a disgrace and disrespectful. Laugh, and sooner or later your *** will be
    kicked.

    8) Next time Old Glory (U.S. flag) prances by during a parade, get on your
    damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart.
    Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying
    her...of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ***
    kicking.

    9) What Jane Fonda did during the Vietnam War makes her the enemy. The
    proper word to describe her is "traitor." Just mention her nomination
    for"Woman of the Year" and get your *** kicked.

    10) Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran. We
    are Americans and we all bleed the same regardless of our party affiliation.
    Our Chain of Command, is to include our commander in Chief. The President
    (for those who didn't know) is our CIC regardless of political party. We
    have no inside track on what happens inside those big important buildings
    where all those representatives" meet. All we know is that when those
    civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military
    to go straighten it out. The military member might direct you to Oliver
    North. (I can see him kicking your *** already.)

    11) "Your mama wears combat boots" never made sense to me ... stop saying
    it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore, could kick
    your ***!

    12) Bin Laden and the Taliban are not communists, so stop saying "Let's go
    kill those Commie's!!!" And stop asking us where he is!!!! Crystal balls are
    not standard issue in the military. That reminds me ... if you see anyone
    calling those damn psychic phone numbers; let me know, so I can go kick
    their ***.

    13) Flyboy (Air Force), Jar Head (Marines), Grunt (Army), Squid
    (Navy) etc, are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless
    you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them.
    That could get your *** kicked.

    14) Last but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military,
    support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious
    holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there
    are literally thousands of sailors and troops far from home wishing they
    could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices
    they make every day. Without them, our country would get its *** kicked.

    - "It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the
    press.

    - It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.

    - It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to
    demonstrate.

    - It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and
    whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the
    flag."

    Nice. While I have never Kicked anyones *** for it sometimes a few words and leading by example will do wonders. ONE person in front standing up and removing their hat can have a ripple effect.

    I sympathise with #11, my mom (and dad) wore combat boots, and she kicked my butt with them on quite a few times.

    I think this should be moved out of "the lighter side" sticky'd and posted in every forum.
