There is a rather interesting article in the LA Times, positing that there is a growing separation between the members of the military and the citizens of the USA.
And I do believe they are right. As a military member, one EARNS their pay every day and more so on deployment or in a combat zone. A not so joking statement was made back around 2004 that America was at war and Americans were at the mall.
I’m beginning to see some of the same separation we had during Vietnam, where John Q. Public didn’t ‘get’ the military. They aren’t calling the military folks baby killers (yet), but they are prosecuting them for pretty much any infractions they can find, including researching things that happened in combat that ‘might’ have violated the moving ROEs that seems to be changed on a whim.
When I hear what is happening inside the beltway with contracts, and contractors, it’s pretty obvious the administration IS going after the military anyway they can, and forcing out good leaders any chance they get.
