I have to admit that your views are off of the wall and in my opinion downright crazy.....but I appreciate your opinion and I appreciate all the work you have done to bring togther so much information on the various topics. I am an open minded cadet at West Point and it is interesting to read things from an opposite perspective. I hope you have good upcoming Christmas and I want you to know one thing....no matter what...every man and women at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point is preparing to lead soldiers into battle on your and America's behalf. No matter the opposition against the governments view, we appreciate the support of the people and we are willing to lay down our lives for every single citizen in this country from murderers to drug addicts, wife beaters to alcoholics, from college students to CEO's, we stand for YOU. Have a good Christmas and a happy New Year.

Sincerely,

Cadet Seaton,
USMA Company B-3
United States Corps of Cadets

Hi Jonathan,

OK, thanks for your gallantry & dedication to duty. I know that your heart's in the right place. I've already replied to a letter from an active duty Marine that was similar to yours, so I won't repeat myself other than to say that I was 18 years old when I went into the military and I was quite certain that I knew everything about everything. I was gung ho, dedicated, trusting, and believing. Eventually, I came to understand (it took some years) that the entire politico/military/industrial complex is a huge intertwined Killing combine that reaps obscene profits and power for the Haves-at the expense of innocent civilians- while extracting the cost from the Have-Not's.

Life is a learning curve and you are at the beginning of yours. Let's hope that when push comes to shove, you'll remember that you are a child of God and that you will not allow yourself to be used as yet another complicit cog in that Killing machine because when you get to the far side of the journey, you'll only have your conscience to either sustain you or imprison you.

I hope you have a pleasant Christmas as well.

Good luck, Ken
