So she joined the Oregon National Guard for the money, or what?!

All this whiny pacifism is starting to piss me off, especially when it's coming from alleged National Guard members.

First off - her letter is horrible and yes, she should immediately receive a dishonorable discharge. I started thinking about all the fun, exciting, advertisements I have heard in recent years, "In the Army National Guard, You Can.."

When you advertise Club Med....somehow I would guess a lot of recruits don't read the (for qualified soldiers) line.
