How about we pay vets to do this? There are so many vets that can't find jobs because they aren't trained to do anything else. Let them protect schools, hospitals, battered womens shelters - anywhere where heroes are needed.

What about those "heroes" go rethink their life instead.
Veterans aren't heroes at all. They fought for a country that attacks the weak and innocent more than these "terrorists".

It seems like people treat soldiers way too good in America. Being a soldier is nothing to be proud of. You didn't protect anything. You attacked something!
Volunteer to be a "hero" ?

I'm sorry you feel that way. My husband spent two years in Afganistan fighting for people who couldn't fight for themselves, like the children who had been tortured by the local terrorist groups. I'm proud of my hero who has given his time and health to help others.

That's ******** "they're aren't trained to do anything else". I'm pretty sure most shop owners would hire a vet to be a manager over any college grad. Vets have battle tested leadership experience and will be committed to their job. Stop acting like Vets are helpless homeless people.

Some people are nice enough to realize that those traits make great employees but a lot of people just look at the list of qualifications and they don't have the certifications, formal education or on the job experience that they may need to do the job. It depends on what they did over there, but most lower rank medical staff, infantry (I'm sure there's lots more but it's really early and I can't think straight) don't have the paperwork to back up their experience.

this shouldn't be needed at all. What has the world come to when schools and hospitals are no longer safe? My school use to be the place to go for storm shelters. These places shouldn't need protection. Nothing bad should happen there at all. What we need to do is not have ****** up assholes shooting up public institutions.
#219 to #152 - CosplayNinja (12/20/2012) [-]
I completely agree with you. I wish we didn't need such measures. Unfortunately, until everyone is mentally stable and well-adjusted, people are still in danger. Until people start helping others who need help, this will keep happening. I volunteer a lot of my spare time working with suicide risk teens. Do you do anything to help? Stop complaining about the situation and do something to change it!
#585 to #152 - anon (12/20/2012) [-]
It find this silly. There is nowhere in the world where anybody can be "safe" there's always a possibility of death at anytime in any situation.

It's not that simple. I go to a big military school that's close to as good as the service academies. So I've seen countless men who have seen combat. Some amazing, some not. Just because you're a veteran doesn't make you a good person. One of the TAC's in one of the barracks was arrested recently for committing war crimes in Afghanistan. Another is a former Army Ranger who's the funniest guy I know. You never know who's around your kids and who knows if they have PTSD. Whilst there are some brave great men, there's always the chance of the guy who cracked. I don't want that chance around my future children.

It should be like any other situation where an adult is in charge of the safety of others - lots of mental evaluations and background checks. I'm not saying put every retired soldier in front of a school. Some of the guys I know are complete assholes and shouldn't be within 20 feet of a kid. Some guys are too messed up mentally and can't be trusted to perform in traumatic situations. Put the guys who are able to help in the places where they are needed.

Well they'd obviously still need to take a job interview. It's not like the jobs would be handed out to veterans like candy. That's not how jobs in general work.

I would say Good for him, but I'm pretty sure this guy is just impersonating a Marine. Why is he wearing desert camies? First It's winter time, we're wearing woodland camies and won't wear deserts again until the daylight saving time change in the spring. Second as some marines have already stated on here you don't wear camies off base, you wear Blues or Service uniforms (like the green ones the drill instructor wore in Full Metal Jacket for those that don't know what the Service uniforms are). What we have here is a Civilian pretending to be a Marine and using the grade school shooting tragedy to get his 5 minutes of fame.
Bring on the red thumbs but this guys is a fake.

Pic related, it's real Marines standing watch at a grade school taken this morning

Maybe he's a vet and those are the only BDU's he has? I dunno, but it could be legit.
User avatar #150 to #100 - xchewsifferx ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
I'm going to disagree with you. My friend is a Marine and he wears his ACU's when he's off the base. Typically he's only in his class A uniform when he's going to a formal engagement with his girlfriend or occasionally when he comes back to visit our old high school.
User avatar #173 to #150 - Cobaltsushi ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]

Right, sorry. That was the only terminology i new them as when i was in ROTC. Then again is was in an Army ROTC. Regardless of that fact, i have still seen my friend in his fatigues when he was off base.

It's agaisnt the UCMJ to wear cammies off base unless for emergency conditions, the army and chair force do it anyway and look like complete bags of ass

He could be an ex marine and that may be the only uniform he has left, just a thought
#119 to #100 - coreyslyf (12/20/2012) [-]
you are absolutely right my friend. although I gave it the benefit of the doubt that this wasn't actually OC (big surprise on funnyjunk, right?) and that it may have actually been taken during spring/summer months. but the point still stands that he is off base in cammies.
User avatar #149 to #100 - tikledpikle (12/20/2012) [-]
i'm no longer in the Marines, but i would still pull out my desert's(only cammies i still have) and do the same.

My brother's Army Special Forces, he and his SF buddies don't like wearing their dress uniform or anything camo in public. Being on an army base, he told me whenever they go out and see someone wearing their dress uni's out to dinner they all just want to jump the guy, not out of any retarded bullying or triage ******** , they just immediately don't like those guys. 2 years ago after his graduation ceremony he didn't have a change of clothes and had to wear his dress uniform when we went out to eat. He looked around uncomfortably the whole time and he said, "I just want to punch myself in the face." He's too humble and he does appreciate it when people come up and thank him, he says anyone who see's his green beret and understands what it symbolizes seem to try even harder to show their respect, but he feels like wearing his dress uniform is just asking for it.

This is obviously different since he's around kids, but point is there are several ways soldiers and vets want to be recognized and carry themselves.

User avatar #140 to #100 - ohnomynamedoesntfi (12/20/2012) [-]
This marine is retired. He pulled his uniform out of his attic to stand guard. My guess is that he just so happened to pull out that certain uniform. So yeah, he is a legit marine, just a retired one.
User avatar #109 to #100 - badbowser (12/20/2012) [-]
I think more kids today recognize a soldier in camo than in their blues, especially the youngest elementary schoolers. I would also say that with the recent wars taking place almost entirely in desert conditions, most of the media kids see soldiers in has them dressed in their desert fatigues.

There have actually been multiple shootings the past week. There was one in Clackamas county, OR (2 victims dead), one in Memphis, TN (mother of four dead), another in Topeka, KS (two officers killed), a fourth one in Las Vegas (1 woman killed), and a finally three people were shot in an Alabama hospital.
The Newton shooting has just gotten the most attention because there were more casualties and the victims were schoolchildren.
