A Message from Our Troops

for Kickin’ Ass

for the Non-Military

Make sure you read #13

Dear Civilians, ‘We know that the current state of
affairs in our great nation has 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 where we would like your

1. The next time you
see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National
Anthem – kick their ass.

2.. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the
American Flag in protest – kick their ass.

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 ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT
pretend that you were.  Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle
Fatigues, telling others that you used to be ‘Special Forces’.

Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were
seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass

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 ass-kicking
(children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the *US Coast Guard*
‘non-military’, inform them of their mistake – and kick their

7. Next time Old Glory
(the US 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 ass-kicking.

9. ‘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 would kick your ass!

10. ‘Flyboy’ (*Air Force*), ‘Jarhead’ (*Marines*),
‘Grunt’ (*Army*), ‘Squid’ (*Navy*), ‘Puddle Jumpers’ (*Coast Guard*), 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. Using them could get
your ass kicked..

11. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a
member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every
Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends,
please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines
and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God
for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our
Country would get it’s ass kicked.

12. ‘It’s the Veteran, not the reporter, who has
given us the freedom of the press.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the
freedom of speech.’

‘It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who
gives us the freedom to demonstrate.’

‘It’s the Military 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.’


13. If you ever see anyone singing the national anthem
in Spanish – KICK THEIR ASS.

  1. Yes, In God We Trust!

  2. ‘Your mama wears combat boots’

    A fact when the momma does indeed wear da boots. Although some may think it is a tough statement, not really in these military parts where there are many women who wear ’em, and wear ’em proudly. For the non-military, it was always taken as a statement of the fortitude and resilience of the mom of the house, single or married.

    ‘It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who
    gives us the freedom to demonstrate.’

    A lesson for The Selected.

    Cool post.

  3. Thanks! This was sent to me by one of my military relatives.
    My daughter in law wears combat boots proudly! 17 years active and still going strong too!

    The selected would do well to sit down, shut up and do some listening!

  4. I love that list! I especially loved number 12…a lesson that many people seem to forget.

    And all that ass-kicking reminded me of this video….have to wonder if her father was in the military. 😉

  5. Checking in on you…hope your injection worked and you’re feeling better. Still praying for you. 🙂

  6. OT but how are you feeling today, Mom?

  7. Yeah, PMM, hope the epdl worked out okay.

    Hang in there!
