  •  in my Navy days I was one of those... (4+ / 0-)

    ..."big burly men". In my twenties in '75, at 270 lbs and strong as a bull, I really was quite an imposing figure then. Now at 58 and 220 lbs maybe not so much. Yep, I've never forgotten any of my Army tanker, Navy or police training. It's all good. I learned all about true patriotism, love of country, respect for the law and people, honor, and of course saving lives-not just taking them, whether in self-defense or defending the nation I love with all my heart. That's something nobody can ever take away from you. That is unless they want to walk over my dead body to try and take it from me. So far, most people just take one look at my face(the face of one who has paid a lot of dues) and keep right on walking. Don't ask me why, maybe it's my finely-tuned "6th sense", but my greatest hope (and fear)in my bones today is that my own government won't test the training they gave me to defend myself from their potential tyranny, as I feel the specter of impending police state is coming very soon.
