This Twitter thread from J.R. Salzman says it all

While people who have never served in the military set their hair on fire over the ban on gender confused people, I thought it might be helpful to hear from someone who actually has some experience serving in combat.

And I found the perfect guy: J.R. Salzman – an Iraq War vet and wounded warrior.

Salman Twitter thread

He laid it all out in one hell of a Twitter thread.

What I tell you? Is that not the best Twitter thread ever?

I really have nothing else to add to this.

    From one (VN) war vet to another: Well said!

    One of the best (if not the best) explanation I’ve seen or heard.
    It damn sure isn’t a video game, there are no replays or shutting down.
    Those that have experienced war/combat know.

    As I told my son-in-law upon his return from Iraq, “Don’t expect friends and family to understand the experienced you lived, they’ll never understand.” What is important to them is the new car they just bought, what bar they went to last week or their latest promotion since you were away.
    Very few really give a shit where you’ve been or what you did to survive and they wouldn’t understand either.

    We that served realize it’s not a game, those that stay behind and profit from it say and we’ve all heard, send in the military. We bleed they dance as in the Kuwait fiasco. War is hell if you are there only. Otherwise we wave the flag once a year and feel vindicated. We got ours, tough shit man.

    Oh, God bless that wonderful man! And all those who serve/served.

    The military is not a Petri dish. It is supposed to be a fighting machine that destroys our enemies, not a place where some freak can “adjust his/her/its new bra/jock straps” and swish his/her/its way thru sand, dirt, rocks, etc.
    I agree with DJT 100%.
