'Modern Warriors' on Fox

Anyone else watching this on Fox? So far, so good and covers the issues covering this generation of warrior.

I caught about 15 minutes of it last night. I caught the portion when they were discussing the mentality of being owed something for serving(VA rating) . I thought they had a few valid points but don’t agree with the overall statement.

Is it just me or do Marcus and Morgan just come across as pissed off? Maybe it's just their facial expressions. My wife constantly asks me what I'm mad about when I'm not mad because of my facial expressions so maybe it's the same thing.

On a side note did you know that when Marcus was at Buds his twin brother Morgan switched out with him to give Marcus a break?

Why yes, yes we did...and me and the rest of the Third Phase cadre made sure that Marcus "paid the Man" as soon as he came into the Phase. He still excelled and was one of my more memorable students, even if Redwing had never happened. All around very solid guy, and I'm glad I was part of molding him into a Frog (and many others).

Thanks for posting that - that took some balls on their part, and Morgan wasn't even in BUD's yet. LOL.

Same situation here..

I rarely get truly pissed about anything... it takes a lot to get me no shit angry about something

But my wife thinks Im mad every day lol..

facial expressions are typically what makes her ask "what are you mad about"..
