I'm sure the cumulative effect of having veterans exempted from Federal income tax would lead to all the wealthiest people in our country to get commissions in the service, have a nice cushy rear-echelon position (never once risking their wellbeing) and going nuts with their industries and ventures.
Nah! (j/k) These people don't seem to demonstrate any real loyalty to the nation, only their commercial activities (otherwise they wouldn't be all out for the NAU).
While I would have benefited from such a thing while I served (up through Desert Storm) I'm not sure the Fed would have tolerated it. And in our country, it appears that Fed is the governing body now, and has been for quite some time (many decades at least.)
I like the idea though!
