BTW, what is the military's position on having enemy sympathizers among their ranks?
I have chosen my profession. It's to serve my country as a military member. Just as any profession, one would seek a place where they would feel the
employment is best. The Army, for me, was not a good fit. I don't think promotion through 'boards' is the best way to choose it's NCO leaders. It
is too easy for people who are unqualified to advance. I think the Air Force has a better way of choosing it's NCO's, through aptitude tests. Too
many times in the Army have I seen bosses who have no clue as to what they are doing. I was in the Signal Corps, maybe it's different for other
MOS's. As to the treatment of enemy combatants, the best thing about the Army, IMHO, was the NCO corps. The esprit de corps. Now, I want you to think
about how we treat our enemy and how it corresponds to the oath NCO's in the US Army abide by. If you do not see a correlation between fair and just
treatment for everyone. A manner, a code of conduct, a propellant of all ideas that are American, then we do simply do not agree as on how American
soldiers should conduct themselves among their peers or their enemy.
