I just had a thought, I'll state it and the let it go.
I'm an Operation Enduring Freedom vet. Let's say hypothetically speaking in 150-200 years the USA became a Muslim nation. I would no longer be a "hero" to my country, I would be a monster.
I don't think of myself as a hero in any sort of way, it is just a term often used to describe old soldiers and what not. Correct?
Also, I am not bashing Muslims or their faith. It just so happens we were fighting a Muslim nation is all. If we were fighting Louisiana I would have used them as an example.
