A Few Good Deer Hunters

Remember this scene from A Few Good Men.  Of course you do:


I found this reworking of the speech with a little nod to deer hunters on the opening weekend of the hunt. 

Replay the video and read this version along.  The source is unknown:

People, we live in a world that has forests, and those forests have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Bambi, and you curse the deer hunters. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know.

That Bambi's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that tree stand, you need me on that tree stand! We use words like honor, code, loyalty.

We use these words as the backbone of a life spent shooting something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it.

I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a drive. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
