Now I dont like to attack people personally... but you made me laugh...
You spent your time in the Navy. Like a certain someone told me "If I were you I wouldnt go for infantry type work. I would go in the Navy!
Electricity, hot showers, cooks, VIDEO GAMES!!!" (Not for me.)
Not to mention stationed in Japan. Most peaceful nation on earth.
So I can see why you think you arent doing an evil job. But you comfortably send people off to war. To places you know nothing about, if you are no
longer actively in combat. Stop trying to act like the victim.
Recruiters I dont really have respect for (unless they got transferred there). If people want to join they will join, they dont need people soliciting
them, so yes your job is to be a salesman.
Let me correct you on a few things:
1. You are right, the majority in military are intelligent and most of everyone I have met have been wonderful people. But there are always
2. Yes there are benefits, as well as downsides, but in my mind the fact that we have militaries at all in the world is proof of a failed system. We
are mercenaries with a pretty title. And I have heard from numerous african-american soldat that the 'gettoes' in america are kept poor so that the
Army can recruit there easier.
3. There are plenty of handicapped people. I have met many logistics people in wheelchairs, or crutches, some people with missing arms, etc.
Oh PS - I can name dozens of people, just off the top of my head, who regret military service. I could write a book series worth of their and my
stories. Mostly Russians who have been to Chechnya. Advice: do NOT go there. America always has this unwarranted Godly view of military service.
Probably due to seeing it from furnished green zones and cockpits miles up. But dont get me wrong I have met a number of Americans who see war from
enemy territory too.
