Our granddaughter joined the Navy fresh out of high school last summer amid protests from her school counselor who felt it was a bad idea and that she should go to college instead. Her choice of career is law enforcement and after considerable research and thought she chose the Navy as the best to achieve her goals.
While traveling in uniform with fellow Navy and Marine recruits she said most people showed her a lot of kindness and respect but that some did not. Some people called them “baby killers.” I was shocked! She told me that these were people in their 60s. This made me sad that people in my age group would still repeat these evil words. She also told me that at one airport they were spit on. This was even worst! I asked who did this and she said some young people.
I cannot believe that there are some that hate the sacrifice and service these young recruits are giving to keep America safe and free.
