I just got this in my E-mail box...I thought it was amusing. I figured I'd post it here... other people do it...why not me?

There is a word that gets repeated a few times and will get *** out....I can fix it if it offends anyone in any way...but this is a direct copy from my email...

I don't know how old it is...so please don't hit me with a 'welcome to last week' type thing... I just got it....and I'm the last stop on the Information Super Highway. :(




Military Rules for the Nonmilitary Personnel

===================================

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 other 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 our military for 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."

(Please pass this on so I won't have to kick your ***!)

Amen my brother. I may not have been the most gung ho sailor in the Navy, I served my time and I got the f out, but I served and got a few medals along the way. I, like most people who serve, never think we will really be in a war. Gulf War I blindsided me, but I earned the right to call a Marine a Jarhead and also earned the right to be called a Squid. And the next time I see some dumb a$$ wearing his hat during the national anthem I will tell them they have an impending a$$ kicking.

I have two younger brothers.
One is in the Air Force and the other in the Navy. Both now doing seemingly tame jobs, but the military is a big machine with all kinds of people.
Both have been in the hot spots in the last 5 years--one on the Teddy Roosevelt carrier (The Big Stick) in the Med during the Bosnia thing and the other in Bahrain last summer and fall giving weather briefings to the pilots patrolling the middle east.
They are both here in the states now and even though I thank God that they are here safe, many other people's family members are over there fighting, working and dying.
God bless our troops and their families.

I was almost guilty of this one due to my own awe! I was admiring a beautifully restored B-17 (Aluminum Overcast). I noticed an older man staring at her to. I commented that it was much bigger than I had thought. He said it was just like he remembered it. He explained he had flown left seat in one during WWII. I was so awed that I just stared stupidly for a while! I finally remembered who I was staring at and just asked to shake his hand and said "thank you".!:usa: :)
