Laurent,

Concerning the US troops: I get that when they are overseas fighting (or just holding down the fort), they aren't always actually fighting for freedom. But sometimes they are. The root of the "support the troops" comments comes as a legacy of the Vietnam conflict. During that time, troops who were drafted and had to go off to war without recourse were sometimes treated like enemies upon return. And this by mostly young anti-war protesters who often evaded the draft themselves. Both positions somewhat understandable, but it was a tragedy when any real anger should have been reserved for Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and their minions.

I'll say this for Everman: I'm pretty impressed with the discipline it must have taken for him to take such a different course through life. Sounds like he's become good at what he does/did.
