I'd like to clear up some more stereotypes about military people:

Stereotype: All military people approve of violence.~

Truth: Some do and some of us are pacifists whether you believe it or not.~ I'm not just speaking for myself here, there are people who have been in the military far longer than I have and some who still are in the military, who are all pacifists.~ We do not believe violence is the best nor should it be the first option, and we do all that we can to use and to exhaust all options to prevent violence: like some one once said, "There are no winners in War, every one loses some one they love."

We do the best that we can in the best ways that we know how with what ever we have to work with or not to work with, nothing is ever "black and white": there is always far more to the picture than many can see at first.~


Stereotype: All military men are or will eventually become "tough", "jaded", "unstable", "never smile", or "cowardly".~

Truth: We can all be any of these at any time, some are more of one of these than the others more often, but like always it's an individual thing.~

For me personally: I love and enjoy every thing, I love to talk, I love to smile, I love to laugh, and I love to make jokes.~ I hope that I continue to do so and if I don't then I hope that some how I will remember how to smile, how to love, how to enjoy life, and how to appreciate every thing, for truly: in my opinion if you are not content then there is no point in the life that you are living.~ I'm happy just to be alive and when I'm dead I'll be happy to be dead, for I appreciate every thing.~


Stereotype: All military women eventually get taken "advantage" of.~

Truth: I know for a fact that there are some military women who can wipe the floor with any one at any moment metaphorically and literally.~ What ever a woman can or can not do is up to herself same as a man, no one else.~ If you want to know some thing about some one ask them, don't assume any thing, ever.~ Yes, many military places still treat women like their porcelain dolls and it is not fair to them.~ Some women might not have earned their their position with exactly the same requirements as their male versions and some might have, for many it was not their choice to be treated this way.~ Regardless, do not make the mistake of underestimating what a "military woman" is capable of.~
