From last year...
Veteran's Day 2014
With the Congressional pawn that the military has been and continues to be, I still can't recommend it as a career. Every year, there are fewer and fewer who have served serving in public office. It's a shame and I can only hope that it changes soon. As much as Congress is cutting the numbers, there are fewer and fewer positions *to* serve in the military. As our higher ranking officers continue to act like politicians--rather than the soldiers, Airmen, Marines, and Naval personnel that they are--it's really disheartening.
Those Generals and Admirals need to do a better job of looking out for their people rather than just looking out for their behinds.
