Left unsaid when they say “work 20 years and get retirement pay for 40” is that if it’s such a great deal, there where are the long lines begging to sign up?
If it’s such a great deal, then why do they have to run huge multi-billion dollar recruiting commands and recruiting campaigns, beg, borrow, steal, lie and cheat just to get people to join up?
If it was such a great deal then they should be beating people away from the recruiting offices. I read about a week ago where about 5000 people applied for 25 jobs that came open with some manufacturing firm.
Where are the 5000:25 ratios for Army openings?
Amen. Plus, I see all these crocodile tears being shed for “the children” of illegal invaders. Where are the tears for the children of military members? Military kids are uprooted from their schools, homes, friends, and parents. No one sheds a tear for them, and the theft of their parents pensions.
