VETERANS DAY, SECURITY POLICE
I am still in Veterans Day follow up. As I was at my friend's site "Social Sense" I was moved by his posts about the USMC. They are a glorious service and I am in awe.
Having said that, all the armed forces are glorious in their own right. I spent my time in the military in the Security Police. While that sounds like a purely civilian pursuit, it really was a military fighting unit. My brothers fought to retain their bases with their lives and some made the ultimate sacrifice. In Vietnam, that meant protecting your base against all type of attacks. We did our job and when it was all said and done, we never lost a base.
When you are in the military you are committed to your country. There is no higher calling. I was proud to serve my country, and I would do it again if I could.
To my friends like Pat, we were noble, we fought for our country, and we triumphed against all odds. We are proud, we are the Security Police.
