Delusions of grandeur. These guys would screw up a 7-11 robbery attempt.
As someone in the military(not Army), this is a few bad apples that black eye the rest of us. and this pisses me off more than you can know. When
people do crap like this, you know what happens to the rest of us? We are all punished and looked at as stupid people that would never have a job if
they didn't join the military. and that's what military is for, for people too stupid to have a career.
I just spent a 12 hour day, being lectured about ethics... Or as I call it common sense. If you think it's wrong don't do it. Could have summed the
whole thing up. Well no S# Thanks for wasting my day telling me what I already know. But there are people that NEED to be told what to do, and yes,
some of them are in the military. Are we all mental midgets running around with rifles looking for an officer to tell us which end points towards the
enemy? No, but there are bad apples... in EVERYTHING.
Guys I can't speak for all branches, but most people I know join with good intentions, and serve because they feel it is their duty... Many are
immigrants that feel they owe it because of the chance America gave them... what is wrong with that? That is awesome.. Some, because their fathers and
grandfathers did, and they want to follow in their foot steps. People like me, Cause I wanted too see if I could hack it. Please lets not go back to
the Vietnam days where people who served honorably, and did what OUR government and leadership told them they have to do, and they were shunned for
