The Liberal Soldier and that Hallowed Tree of Liberty.
DAILY KOS - 01-11
This is a piece born of frustration. I’m liberal, let me tell you, I’m DAMN liberal. I also became a fully trained combat soldier for the United States Army in 1981. It’s a long time ago, that first day where I was awarded that respect and assigned a unit. I’m sure my life and career path doesn’t mirror that of a liberal teacher or academic or anyone else, unless they also served (many did!) and I will admit I am not anyone else.
