    No way I managed to get any experience during my "limited" exposure to the military.  27 years of active duty plus 19 years as a dependent.  "Only" 46 of the 46 years I have been on the planet.

    No doubt you have vastly more experience than me......

      get you to admit that you are one of the military leaders i was referring to and a little coaxing accomplished that.

      your ox was gored so you are upset, too bad but you were part of the problem not part of the solution so your complaint is specious on its face.

      i wasn't in as long as you but i had to deal with the military mentality and lifers are lifers for a reason and it isn't because they want to defend the country, they have a more selfish reason than patriotism and just use the patriotic theme to enhance their reputations.

      ps - i was already out of the military and vn when you were born lifer.

        BTW you never answered who you admire, just who you think sucks.

        So the bottom line is you were in, probably didnt like it, probably mocked your leaders as stupid "Lame Ignorant Fucks Expecting Retirement."  Did your time and got out having never had to be the guy who made the hard call while always mocking them and questioning their abilities.  And now you are sure you know EXACTLY how things are today despite having left the service before folks like me were born.  

        I guess your time in service didnt teach you things like reading all of a web page because in those ancient days we didnt have many computers and we certainly were not going to let the likes of you get near them.  Had you read any of my comments on here it would have been plain that I am on active duty now.  Dont flatter yourself with a notion that it was some secret you were able to sus it out and then "coax" me into admitting.  

        But hey, thank you for being part of the less than 1% that serve and thank you for paying taxes so I can retire comfortably making close to 6 figures with full medical.  Yeah us lifers sure are stupid.
