I salute you, Sir!

No salutes required, old buddy - I'm still here.
Very true - but this is democracy. As I keep telling my Brit squaddie friends, a civilian cannot possibly have any concept about what it means to serve. Have you ever tried to describe "yellow" to a man blind from birth?
Actually I like the American way of doing things. British servicemen do NOT salute unless they are in uniform AND wearing proper headgear. We just remove any hat we might be wearing and stand to attention. I will guarantee, though, that our respect for the fallen is not in the slightest sense inferior to your own.
I find that those I talk to about military service, first claim that they will not support force by government over others. Later in the conversation, they say they fear facing death if it comes to that.
Those that I served with seemed to follow this:
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear." -Ambrose Redmoon
It's been said that a soldier's life is 98% boredom and 2% terror. You still do the 2% though, because it's what those bastards in boot camp drummed into you...
Blessings to us all.
COURAGE is the quality of spirit that enables you to face challenge or pain without showing fear......

Courage is doing what you know is right even when you know doing it will get you killed. That's called being a soldier!
