What is your opinion on our military?
I think nothing much of it, but something that I want to do since my family have been in the military and that I just want to be like them.

From a non-American:
I think the American military is good in technology and size however I am baffled by the fact they are still bothered to stay in Afganistan. They as well as anyone know that the Americans won't have much of an effect on the Afganis who would rather stay loyal to Taliban than the "infidel" ( American soldiers).
Also one thing I hear a lot that I believe your media covers up is the all scandals and mistakes those in higher ranks of the military make. They plan air strikes a highly populated areas and in the result kill many civilians and some of your soldier happen to be irresponsible.
Oh well that's just my 2 cents
Oh and to those above comments about freedom.
All I can say is
People don't fight wars for freedom they fight for power. The US wants power in the Middle East and continues its so called war efforts there.

Our military aren't heroes, and they aren't sacrificing for our freedom, but others capital gain. The real heroes and people who sacrificed we're those who fought the civil war through WWII. Now their are acts of heroism by honorable soldiers, but not as a whole would I apply those terms

I don't mean to offend anyone but honestly I don't feel that going across the world to kill people because the government says that they are "bad people" is in any way heroic.
If you murder someone in any other setting besides war it is terrible but if the government tells you to it is heroic?...
They are not fighting for freedom, they are fighting for a government that uses them to get what they want.

The U.S. Army is amazing, kudos to all the Men adn Woman that risk their lives to protect us. I would love to join the military, if you can die and respawn like call of duty.

The government is always meddling in countries they have nothing to do with, we are not in the middle east for any reason besides the governments need for power and oil.
WWII is an exception because we were attacked first and it had to be done. This war is completely pointless and people are brain washed by the government to believe that killing people is okay because they say so.
