No, friends, the holier-than-thou attitude toward one's countrymen who either did not or could not participate in the nation's battles was not Berardo's way.
Upon his van, you would never see that grotty bumper sticker which read:

TO THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR IT, FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW.

So Berardo put his ass in the sling, leaving 'protected' status, and attending to, whether by recruitment, draft, or volunteering, the status of 'soldier', and was damn well proud of it.

Now, back at the ranch, shop, HOME sweet HOME, Berardo had no part of flag waving jingoism.
