"The military is an unpretentious environment.."
Yup! and that's why it works. Everything anyone needs to know about you is on your shirt front or your sleeve. The rest is BS. Too bad the civilians are not so clear on things, we always have to qualify ourselves for one another.

Exactly. You would think Rather would know all about this after his long and glorious career in Marine boot camp before he got kicked out. Maybe he had a problem understanding where his DI was comming from. Its amazing how these reporters get in with the units and then all the sudden start sounding like republicans. At least until they get home and get brainwashed again.
