Today an many of you know is Veterans’ Day and in honor of the day I put together a large photo post of Military Guys doing some boy touching. Now just like last year I’m using only photos I believe of actual Military men and none of them are rated more then PG nut a few are suggestive. This is very image heavy, but hopefully no repeats from last year, but enjoy.

*Does anyone know of a boy touching group over on Dreamwidth?


Just two guys being together as friends

I'm in love with this post. Sometimes I wished this wasn't a members-only community so that I could rec things like this.

I recently was reading bits and pieces from a couple of Vietnam-era authors, and I was struck by how much this post reminded me of one particular statement. Men (and probably women, too, but Vietnam didn't have female soldiers in combat as far as I know) might have joined the military with some vague idea about protecting the country, but that quickly morphed into protecting and supporting the people in one's unit. The authors said it wasn't that soldiers didn't love their country and want to fight for it, it was that their fellow soldiers became more than family, more than friends, and taking care of each other was paramount in any mission.

The author of "Picturing Men" suggests this is one of the reasons why so many men (and women, too, I suspect, though I haven't read any research about it) have difficulty settling down to civilian life. That constant sense of comradeship is gone, and they can't find it again even with people they know well, such as former high school friends. He wrote particularly about the men who returned from WWII. Their wives and families expected them to change immediately into fathers and husbands and sons, but they had no good way to do that. Well, most of them did it, but they pined constantly for their fellow soldiers. They couldn't talk about what was bothering them, and people wouldn't have understood.

Sorry to blather on, but I really did enjoy this post. It must have taken you a long time to gather all the pictures and get them on here, and I appreciate your effort.

I wish DW had a boytouching comm. If it does, I don't know about it.
