    I was fresh out of high school and working a boring job while waiting to start college. After Sept 11 2001 i quit my job and joined the Army Sept 12 2001. Ive been serving ever since i've had the pleasure of serving overseas while defending this great nation.

    thats ****ing awesome man. i can barely begin to describe how thankful that i am to be living in a free country like America. being born and having lived in the former soviet union, life was pretty miserable compared to here. thanks for all that you do. hope that you're getting some time to surf.

    thank you for your service, we all appreciate the freedom you have helped defend.

    What a terrible and emotional time that was - seeing two burning streams of smoke from the towers while surfing and not knowing what was going on. Terrible.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to those who serve, and those who lost their lives defending America and supporting democracy and freedom

    No need to thank me. Just doing my job lol.The army is the reason i began to surf. Uncle Sam sent me down to Hawaii for a couple of months and i got hooked. I've been lucky. Ive been stationed in Savannah and now In Fayetteville, NC. I've been relatively close to surf my whole career, but my time is up in the Army and im getting out in Jan to continue my education at UNCW and it doesnt hurt that the beach is right there

    9/11

    9/11 will never be forgotten. May good will and happiness find the families of all those who were lost. Many thanks to all of the people, firemen, police, civilians-all...for all they did and for risking their own lives.

    I would also like to say thank you to those who do serve and have risked their own lives for whatever reason they think they are doing it for. You have alot of courage and may health and happiness stay with you.

    However, and please, nobody take this personally. It is not meant or aimed at those who do risk their lives or are serving-I know you are good and courageous people. Here is the thing though.....NOT a single f-ing war since 9/11 has been about protecting America. Granted, and thankfully, our servicemen have, and our government were able to stop alot of terrorist plots and more casualties from happening, like 9/11. Though none of this war was actually about protecting America. If it was, they would have taken care of Bin Laden when they knew where he was-and which was the real "war on errorism", I mean "terrorism." Granted, that a-hole Sadaam needed to be ousted, but that is not what monkey man errr....bush gave his high school style pep rally about while alienating every foreigner in our country in the first place. These wars have been senseless and far too many lives lost in the process from all sides. My buddy's brother went to 'fight' overseas about two months ago. A F-ing month in, his truck got hit and he now has no legs to show for it. For what!? Was it in the name of protecting America....HELL ****ING NO!
    I support those in the service,my dad, my Grandpa, and my uncle served in the Navy as well, and I wish you all the best of luck and health....But- I am sorry, if you think you are fighting to protect America, you are just one of the sheep. The service may have been about that at one point, but it has not been for a while....
