    Back in 1944 18 year old men, and they were men fought for this country. They flew over Europe knowing that they had about a 20% chance of living thru the required 25 missions they were required to fly. They fought in the face of the enemy with mainly only a gun. The charged up hills in the face of gun fire. They fought even when being bombed.They WERE real men!!!!!!

    Todays 18 year olds want a "safe place" so they wont be offended by words!!!!!!

    IMO todays 18 year olds are overprotected sissy little snots. They need to be told the facts of life and need to HTFU!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did you fly those missions? Some of us have used some of our considrable talents to help develop advanced radar and weapons that gives American soldiers such an advantage that it is now our enemies who have such unfavorable odds. You should be happy that not nearly as many of our young men have to engage in military service and all the emotional and mental problems that come with it, not to mention the injuries.

    Today's eighteen year olds have the equivalent of a grade six education in terms of practical knowledge. That is grade six before the left took over education. Incrementally and over time politics have entered the curriculum that is now so far left that they don't even try to hide it anymore. What truth the left can't deny is watered down and taught by products of the same system. Education is a microcosm of the breakdown of our society that our current batch of eighteen year olds have to live in. The exceptions,our last hope are the home schooled or those in parochial schools. Today's eighteen year olds world view is not truly their own but a product of the dish water they received for an education coupled with popular leftist culture. Today's eighteen year olds are as mature as preteens, preoccupied with their phones, social media and pop culture. It is all part of the left's plan to destroy America most of which has succeeded. Think about this in the event that America is aggressively provoked by another superpower we don't have the wherewithal to respond. Our military is decimated, we don't have the men or materiel to fight a protracted war and worse yet we no longer have the means to produce the necessary weapons. Our nuclear arsenal is old and unreliable and not really an option any one wants to think about. It doesn't take much to figure out where we are headed. Personally I'm old enough not to care I'll be gone when things really are in the toilet but I worry about my children and grandchildren. What kind of nightmare do they face in this Leftist Utopia?

    Says the dude from behind his safe keyboard.

    Your grandparents said the same thing about you because you have cars and Walmarts and the possibility of
    being cured of cancer.

    Whatever.

    Actualy I'm rather glad that people like you are old and dying. Young people of today aren't nearly as ignorant, backwards thinking, or as hateful as the older generation.

    I once had a job where my function was to evaluate the work of engineers, a type of quality control on enginering efforts. It was not at all uncommon to hear older guys making arguments much as you have made here. Yet by comparing their work output, most of them didn't have a leg to stand on.

    And if they refused to fight and tried to resist the government enslaving them and forcing them to kill people, they would have been imprisoned or killed themselves.

    The cell phone industry is part of the leftist plan to destroy America?
    I always wondered why the tin-foil hats ... now I know it's to block cell phone reception and defeat the leftist agenda ... who knew?

    Only a loud subset at the Academies that have turned into Outrageously Priced Day Care Centers for the indoctrination in every weird American twist on various Left Wing theories of dominance through governance.

    After 9/11 I watched the Gen Xer's gear up and become the most lethal fighting force in the history of mankind. If called upon the current generation will do the same.

    Hmm--------------Old ignorant and backward you say. Well-----------these p***y youngsters are stupid and cowardly in my estimation, and are basically sheep because they are too ignorant to know what is going on. They have been led by radical left teachers and professors to believe they are victims. Golly victims of words!!!!! Men of my generation are dead, or have horrible injuries so these young stupid coward can complain and whine.

    Obviously the micro-aggression by Logical1 upon you is devastating. There were also men of different eras like those that fought in Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and the Iraqi War. Each of these men that served showed their valor and honor, while those who did not serve, protested and fled to Canada while living off their parents have become the Liberal PC Socialists of today. Spoiled, pampered, petulant, sexually immoral drug impaired, that's what the young of today represent.

    The socioeconomic factors put in place by the establishment that has set it into motion for hundreds of years has created a climate of fear and selfishness, to the point where mental illnesses run rampant. Everyone suffers, no matter whether they charge up a hill facing hails of bullets, or cower in the corner with voices in their heads telling them that they are scum and deserve to die.

    Some of them did. Some of them fought for other people’s countries, which is even more impressive. Some of them fought for less noble reasons. Of course, some 1944 18 year olds would have been lazy, selfish, ignorant or criminal.

    Some of them do. Some are even worse. Of course, some of today’s 18 year olds are fighting for their country (by choice too). Others are doing even more noble, impressive and respectable things (or at least working towards them).

    Some probably waste all their time moaning about things on the internet too. Lucky we’re so much better than them eh?

    Or you were sent to San Antonio Medical Tech school. In WWII medics were considered non-combatants and there weapons were battle bandages, blood plasma, Sulfa powder, morphine and stretchers.

    Back during the Vietnam War era it was really easy to avoid military service, all you had to say was "I don't like girls."

    But this was before cultural-marxism political correctness so not even a fraction of 1% took that easy way out.
    20,000 draft dodgers fled to Canada before they would lie claiming that they were peter puffers.

    3/4 of today's 18 year old's are rejected from serving in the military today. Either they are to stupid, or did something stupid in the past or allowed themselves physically to become Pillsbury Doughboy's.
