I joined the Military in 1975 and remember being spat upon by my fellow citizens whom I took an oath to defend. Now once again our Political class spits on the Military class. I spent 25 years on active duty and still work for the Air Force as a simple servant. I still think and act like the Senior NCO I rose to from ranks during my interesting career providing the same level of service (one of these days Ive got to learn to be a worthless slimy civilian it would really bring down the stress level).
I also work with a large community of retired Air Force Officers and NCOs who are either simple servants or contractors in my current program. Each and every one of use left the service broken men and women and this is how we are thanked for the years of selfless service, long deployments, substandard pay, living conditions not fit for welfare families (got to love that base housing), and family separations with the lies of free medical, dental and eye care for life for 20 years or more of service. Bull excrement! They have poked the bear and push back is coming my slimy lying crap weasel RINO Congress critter (voted for this bill) will have a primary challenger this coming election year not that I have much hope the system will work to get rid of him. At least I know he will stay out our county as we have a very large community of retired Military that would love to make him the guest of honor an old fashioned neck tie party.
As long as the retirees, spouses and the TEA party patriots stick together we can slay this beast.
