In my day, I was proud to serve a country of FREE people who pursued their own vision of excellence. I was proud to serve so that my fellow citizens could be free to choose their own vision of happiness. And yes, I did understand the difference between my choice and other people's choices. I understood that and was proud that my country allowed those different choices. And I was also proud that it was this freedom that allowed my country to flourish in many different ways.
Unfortunately, Mr. Greenburg does not appear to understand this.
