    "Duty, honor, country" - I was raised on this by my West Point dad, uncle, and grandfather, who served in Vietnam, Korea, and Pearl Harbor, respectively. They may have been conservative, but raised me to be a progressive. They would be horrified by Ms Loesch.

      My dad graduated from West Point and we lived there when I was a kid while he taught cadets after returning from his third combat tour in Vietnam, two with Special Forces.
      I absorbed the ethos of "Duty, honor, country."

      That helped mold me into a staunchly liberal Dem.
      And he's more liberal than I am, in many respects!
      He's very humane, thoughtful and wise man.

      My bro-in-law also graduated and taught there.
      There's lots of us progressives with ties to the military.
