Money will not buy sanity, nor will it restore your maimed body. I've talked to both of my sons about this issue, and it is the first time in my life my opinion regarding service has taken this avenue.
At least in Vietnam the enemy was partially identifiable. In Iraq and possibly Iran, you are fighting an invisible enemy!
Do me a favor and go to a local VFW and talk to a few old timers before you decide!
If you do decide to join, I wish you the best and hope for a healthy stint!
Please don't get me wrong. I salute all my "brothers" currently serving, and those who have given their "all", but not even I would serve under this administration!
Thanks for the tips, means a lot to hear it from someone like you.
I'm talking it over with my family and gf.
But i just want to build something to leave behind for my son and mother.
