I wanted to come back to the point you commented on regarding public service.

First of all, thank you for your service, especially as an 11B. God Bless all grunts, no one else will.

Though an individual may be thoroughly contemptible as a human being, the respect of their position or occupation is honored collectively. Killing a cop is particularly despicable for the value society places on ALL Law Enforcement officers. That the particular victim may be sinner or saint is irrelevant.

In regards to the nature of the service itself, you could not be more wrong, my young friend. You most assuredly were not working at a job ..."Just like every other working person." The Oath you swore committed you to obligations and responsibilities like none other. You were never formally trained about what exactly it means to serve as a professional soldier, but the gravity of the reality of your commitment was always there.

Should you be interested in learning more about the philosophies and legalities of the profession of arms, contact me in game and I will give you some titles to check out. There are some excellent books on the subject that explain things much better than I could ever hope to.
