Hmmm, this thread does not seem to be going well. To answer OP, guess it depends on your definintion of corrupt.

cor·rup·tion
kəˈrəpSH(ə)n/Submit
noun
1.
dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.
"the journalist who wants to expose corruption in high places"
synonyms: dishonesty, unscrupulousness, double-dealing, fraud, fraudulence, misconduct, crime, criminality, wrongdoing; More
2.
the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased.
synonyms: alteration, bastardization, debasement, adulteration
"these figures have been subject to corruption"

So as everyone can see, the US Military, by definition, is not corrupt. As others have stated, individuals within may be corrupt, but as an organization it is not.

FWIW, there are approximately 22 million veterans. The population of the United States is about 323,038,000. Therefore, about 7% of the population would be military veterans.

Proud to have been one of the 7% for 28 years. And to have never come close to meeting the definition of corrupt. Those that choose to denigrate my and other’s service, that’s your right. All I’ll say in return is “You’re welcome”.

Ring Knockers could, in many cases, be considered corrupt, could they not?

No matter how incompetent, no matter how, well, corrupt, the fellow members of the RK societies look out for each other.

But again, those are individuals, not the entire military. RKs are generally graduates from the military academies which at any given time are a vast MINORITY of the active duty force at any given time. And from experience, I can tell you that not all graduates from the military academies are RKs. Many are quick to hold fellow officers accountable, rings or no rings.

I know that. Should have been more precise in my post.

As in any organization, there's bad mixed in with the good.

Its not brainwashing its understanding the nature of the roles we play. Take your self righteous attitude and stuff it, I have less important things to discuss.

wow, name calling and everything, obviously I pushed the "sensitive" button on your poor little brainwashed brain. LOL, I served in the military as well, but I woke up, and saw the lies, so sorry for you. FYI, what I stated was not self righteous at all, sorry you can't handle an opinion....

the Masons, the Catholics and the Vatican, have had integral roles in military corruption, but since we are censored from discussing their roles in it ill just point out this one detail


any experience learned in the military will pay much more in the private industry, those who stay in the military do not do so for the pay. they are there either for patriotism, or for nefarious reasons
