N.J. restaurants NOT reopening for indoor dining this week after Ďknuckleheadí crowds at bars ruin it for everyone

ďSo, unfortunately, the national situation, compounded by instances of knucklehead behavior here at home, are requiring us to hit pause on the restart of indoor dining for the foreseeable future.Ē

you should tell him that he's a civilian and not a soldier anymore

military basic trainingís whole point is to overwrite the new soldierís personality with one that respects order and authority. some people never fully come back out from under the brainwashing.

my grandfather came to the US (leaving germany as a jewish guy) and then as soon as he got the chance he was in the marines and went back to germany to commit righteous "war crimes", but he just loved killing nazis (men, women, whatever). for being 5'4" he was a tough little bastard and had a natural knack for rifles.

he ruled, i wish i had a chance to talk to him more. his service portrait or whatever is scary because he looks exactly like me. his war photos were hilarious because he would take pics of dead germans in funny poses (arms around each other, cigarettes in their mouths, etc).

i watched a video yesterday about the liberation of dachau and it was incredibly sad. the emaciated prisoners, the dead prisoners, traumatized US troops executing germans that hadnít just killed everyone (per orders) and abandoned the camp, US officers pulling guns on each other...

thereís no way an experience like that wouldnít gently caress anyone up long term.

i canít imagine having to worry about that poo poo. like, i remember there were draft rumors leading up to the invasion of iraq back in 2003. i was 23, and still in that window, but no one thought it was really gonna happen.

it means generally that people with a lot of years between them and their parents (and between their parents and grandparents) are more well off because it generally signifies that their (grand) parents had the fortune or opportunity to do what they wanted and/or work to establish themselves before settling down

my grandfather was in the merchant marines pre-ww2 because of the depression etc, then was in the canadian armed forces during the actual war too

he never talked about either except to say joining the merchant marines was the single most hosed up and stupid thing heíd ever done, and he also worked with dynamite in northern ontario mines

my grandpa was born in italy between the wars, came to the us, then a few years later turned around and went back as a us army soldier in the battle of the bulge eventually

after that he never wanted to go back to him home village. i can count maybe 5 things he ever said about his service, he wouldnt talk about anything but some lighter moments

granted the two stories he did share was finding a great stash of booze in a cellar in a flattened house in france and jumping off a motorcycle he found and it rolling into the rhine
