I have 2 years left and then i retire after 24 years of service. I weep for what we have become.
THIS IS NOT AND I REPEAT NOT THE MILITARY MY UNCLES, FATHER, BROTHER AND HUSBAND SERVED IN.
If we do not keep Hussein obama from serving another four years we will no longer have a country that we knew...he will completely destroy America..
when I vote in November I will be voting for the AMERICAN THAT IS RUNNING...
Close relative has 22 years on 1Dec12. Outstanding record, a real asset to the US Military. Relative can’t take it anymore! Relative said: “Frack’em! I’m out of here!”
Thank you for your service!
Just retired, myself.
When I was commissioned, it was against a court-martial offense (not to mention the sodomy, dishonoring the uniform, and false official statements part).
When I was in, it became more and more acceptable.
Glad I retired before it became a prerequisite...
No way would I counsel (much less encourage) someone to join now, at least not without full disclosure on what they will very likely run into.
This forced moral decay will be the ruination of one of the mainstays of our Country (and one of the top several professions with a favorable view in the eyes of the Citizens). With no sense of morality or concept of a higher purpose outside one’s own immediate sexual or sensual gratification, there is no basis for a sense of loyalty to the Constitution as opposed to the current occupier of the position of the Commander-in-Chief.
Nor will there be any compunction at higher levels against turning the military against the Constitution they are sworn to protect, and the Citizens from whom they obtain the authorization to do so.
As Jefferson noted (IIRC), “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”
This must be turned around! We must, as a People, regain our sense of morality, and become worthy of the blessings of our form of government. Otherwise, we will truly have the sort of government we deserve...
