Those are real jobs, the military a constitutional one. The only charity taking place with our troops is when they give their blood for our freedom. And we can’t pay for that.

The men and women who are engaged in service and support, yes are performing real jobs, and at pitful pay rates and with the prospect of receiving also some woeful medical treatment (should they require it).

But before you exclude the ideal that some aspects of the military also replicate a form of socialism, consider that there are also a lot of back-benchers in the Pentagon too, who draw far higher six-figure salaries with full benefits and pensions for their rigorous 40-hour workweeks of performing invaluable tasks such as shepherding VIP’s on tours of domestic bases, or catering to Nancy Pelosi’s travel arrangements, for example.
