So, having a college degree is something you need prior to handling a weapon???
Never been around too many 2LTs, have you?

I'm leaving that person to fend for themselves....Not my fault they are a douchebag.

I think a cross-season quote is more applicable no matter what situation the nation is in.
A quote from Henry Kissinger:
"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy."
If you look at today's current situation, this seems the most truthful.
