A better understanding of SF.

After reading a recent thread post entitled "America's Warrior Sprirt is Fading", i was inclined to make a retort on behalf of myself and other members of my generation. My initial reaction was "hold on a minute, I aspire to be a SF soldier, I work hard, I have worked for everything I have despite nothing ever comming easy for me. I wan't to fight for my country. What are they talking about?"

Thankfully I didn't make that post. The more I read this forum and others like it, the more I began to realize the truth. No civilian really knows what it means to be a Warrior let alone a SF Soldier. I also find myself struggling to understand all soldiers not just SF Soldiers.

My impression is that civilians are viewied with an air of disdain and contempt. I get the feeling that in eyes of most Soldiers, we must tread lightly because we do not, and cannot understand what it means to be a Soldier. We have not been sharpened by combat, essentially we don't speak the same language and until I receive this baptism by fire, we will never speak the same language.

I would like to know what other readers think. Is this how you feel, or am I totally off?

I am trying to understand the SF mindset because SF is a goal of mine.
