Congrats. Lets hope her commander in chief does not put her in harms way.

Congrats.


Thanks.

As for the rest of your back-handed compliment, GFY. Unfortunately, when my daughter chose to make the commitment to fight for her country, it was a package deal that included hateful people like you. 

Butterbean --- 4 years ago -

Congrats. 

Saturn --- 4 years ago -

Not everyone can measure up to be a Marine and that's one hellva' accomplishment!

Congratulations to her and to Mom ... 

sdanielmcev --- 4 years ago -

Thank her for her service.

Ooh rah!! Mark claimed to be a veteran yet he obviously doesn't understand what the military does.

How is worrying about Trump causing a war and putting our military in harms way, offensive?

My son had to sign up for Selective Service....I pray to God, Trump doesn't cause a war and they need to reinstate the draft...and I'm not the only parent who feels this way. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 4 years ago -

Wow. You really like to deal in fear, Dorothy. 

Dorothy Parker --- 4 years ago -

No, I deal in the reality that is Trump. I realize you would lick the ground he walks on, Soupy Sales...I think he's a dangerous toolbag of epic proportion.

Different strokes....

You are by far not the only parent worried about this.

Trump's mouth is very loose and he has very little connection to the socio-economic groups that normally populate the Armed Forces.

Before I retired I knew of many parents worried about Trump being elected for this very reason. You are not paranoid. 

AMDG --- 4 years ago -

Congrats to your daughter 4P - sure you are proud.

Yeah, because it's not like we've been in quasi-war to war status in the middle east for the last 20 years. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 4 years ago -

No. I wouldn't.

What "socio-economic" link did Obama have to our people in the armed forces?

Did I say Mark's comment was offensive? No. I said it was back-handed. There is a difference. There is nothing that Mark could ever say that would offend me as I never let the ramblings of a moron disturb my peace.

As to Mark's comment, he doesn't give a dang about my daughter and whether or not she is put in harm's way. Following up congratulations with feigned concern to make his political point is, IMHO, back-handed.

I like how she takes a thread created about my daughter and makes it ALL about her, especially since I am sure HER son is the only one who's followed the law and signed up for Selective Service. No one else's sons have done that.

Worrying about what Trump might do, considering his knowledge base is quite limited and he shoots from the hip, is logical not fear mongering. 

sheddy --- 4 years ago -

My mom worked for selective services during the Vietnam war and she said it was heartbreaking to see the young boys being sent off to war. I was young at the time, but I remember the war in the news every night and the protests. I think now people look at the veterans coming home as "well, they made that choice of their own free will" I think Dorothy is just hoping that it never comes back to the draft. Me, too.

If you want to speak about fear mongering, then you and shiddy right below you should create a thread about it where you and your little liberal snowflakes friends can complain about it.

This thread is about my daughter accomplishing something that a lot of people, myself included, would never dare to even try. It wasn't created for all of you lib-diots to come out of the woodwork and tell us what you think about Trump. (TDS?)

Look, I don't care about mini-vans, have never done time in a mini-van except as a passenger, and would never pay money for a mini-van. That stated, you wouldn't see me "fear-mongering" about the safety hazards of the automated sliding door on a thread created by a happy van owner in the Dodge Caravan forums, would you?

(HINT: No.)

I am not the KU posting police - you can type what you want, when you want, to whom you want and there is not one thing I can do about that. However, one would think that you and the three or four who have dumped on this thread would exercise a little more tact and maturity and refrain, but given the nature of those who did comment, I am not surprised.

I am indeed, thank you AMDG.

She graduated in the Top 2 of all female Marines in this class and has the rank of Private First Class. Missed Honor Marine by 1 point -

She was the fastest Marine of all the women and finished the 5K ahead of 98% of the men in Kilo Company.

She was selected as the Series Guide by all of the Drill Instructors in November Company and had the honor of carrying the Series Guidon -

In the words of a Gunnery Sgt - "Ms (my last name) - your daughter is a bad a** "

My Marine is the tall one on the end.

Well said! I am a veteran (served in Vietnam). Please tell your daughter "Thank you for her service." I appreciate what she has done. 

voice of reason --- 4 years ago -

congrats!

This is KU, not FB. You can't control who posts or where the topic leads them.

Mark made a comment that was sincere, not backhanded, even though you took it that way. You are so rude and defensive. Take it down a notch.

I said as much, sweetie. I also said there were those on this thread who lacked the tact and maturity to keep their negativity to themselves. You were one of those. It was never a question in my mind, but thank you for demonstrating validity.

Rude and defensive? Take it down a notch? (in Sheldon Cooper's voice) GOOOOOOD LOOOOOORD! Pot. Kettle.
