Moderator: "Many of these 25 year olds, to be fair, began receiving benefits when they were infants. Don't you think it is a bit unfair to characterize them as milking the system?"
Commander Klock: "By age 25, my Dad kicked me out of the house. Health care benefits for 25 year olds? Heck, my advice is simple: join the Navy!"
