    No. I'm honestly afraid of people in the military. I'm sure there are various ways to deal with the problem though, giving the degree of the lack of honorability. If it's something super serious, you can probably talk to their commanding officer.

    I suppose like many sons might.  You try to get along as adults, because as a kid you were powerless and weak.  You pine endlessly for that warm fuzzy, violins playing, reconsiliation for all wounds ever made.  And you recognize finally that frailties belong to everyone, and that some of those everyone's frailties happen to hurt others. 

    And aside from that, you grow a ponytail, figure out you're gay, go all leftie on his ass (okay, in all honesty - that has more to do with past and continuing experiences with the "bootstraps" males - and some women, too - who wear their "self-reliance" as a badge and poke anybody in the eye with the pin-end of it whom THEY see as "not measuring up":

      "Whattaya mean, broken leg??  Walk it off!!!  Concussion, consmussion!  Get back out there and nail the guy who hit'cha"...et cetera.

    My dad was one of those.  For a long while, I attributed it to his coupl'a decades in the Navy, and his old-hat views on gender and "bums" and "broken people" (you know, "loonies", the 'r' word, even "shell shocked" and long-haired).  Fix your own problems and don't ask, expect, or lobby/vote/whine for handouts.

    Grrr......

    I was in the military and yes there are a lo of people that are dishonorable.  This isn't the 1950's you will find that anywhere nowadays.

    Yes - but it wasn't in his "uniform" life.  I knew someone who cheated on his wife while his wife was pregnant with their child.  He sat her down to tell her, "I have to tell you something.  I have gotten someone pregnant and it's not the woman I'm in love with."  And then told her he was in love with someone else and he never loved her.  THAT is soooooo not honorable.
