    ... the Association of the US Army, which is very heavily funded by defense companies and contractors, think it was 62% or something like that, not seeing easily what it is now of their $27 million, but must be bigger.

    They do a lot of stuff important to soldiers and veterans, no doubt.

    Was asked by my brigade commander to make a list of all the officers and who was and was not a member of AUSA.

    At the time, short before PCS, and in looking at the AUSA magazine / literature, I decided maybe that AUSA wasn't what it appeared.  No fellow officers had any clue about who was really funding them.

    Put my name on the top of the list, got pulled 'on the carpet' but after my explanation, nothing came of it. The O-6 didn't ask for the list again the following year from my replacement.

    So can relate the story, and to those working at or with ALEC, and not truly understanding what they are about.

    Can have any mercy, however for the org, sorry.
