can anyone give me some feed back on this, because most people on this website seem to have real crap opimion about our armed forces, i for one, a serving member, have been for 7 years, thinks, there isnt another nation in the world, what could match our armed forces, for the sheer proudness each and every one of us have, to be serving our country! were smart, proffesional, and go to some of the worst hell hole places on this planet, but we go, then come home some time later, have a drink, and forget about it, thats waht makes us proud! and british!

i for one am very proud of our armed forces. Why shouldn't these 15 marines and sailors be allowed to sell their story after the sh1t they have just gone through for the lil they get paid???? Most of us can't imagine what it was like for them, so who are we to critcise them know.

They do a great job in difficult circumstances,why shouldn't we be proud of what they do?
Certainly wouldn't get me signing up to go to the worst holes on this planet chasing Iraqis or hunting Bin Laden down thats for sure.

Totally agree with you Tommy - loads of people out there making big money from books and magazines - even their wedding pictures - like any of us give a damn!!
Our armed forces do a wonderful job for very little recognition by the general public and I applaud all of them.

I've got all the praise in the world 4 the armed forces,u do an exceptional job in extreme circumstances that none of us could imagine unless u've been there.It's the politics behind the decisions that but are men and women in harms way that people have problems with,whether or not we should be in some of the places that we are and 2 what end.Just keep urselfs safe dude.cheers
