There is no practical or historical reason for any citizen or subject of the US to “support the military,” or “our troops.”

You owe more of your Freedoms to political prisoners, political exiles,
whistle blowers, social deviants, criminals, and subversive than to any
soldiers, or the military in general.

The only reason any person venerates the armed
force of their nation is because they are ignorant of the military, how
and for what purposes it functions.
