There was one thing I found in this thread that bugs the crap out of me. This assertion that the Army won’t repair a knee, but will provide sexual reassignment surgeries. If this is true, and knowing what little I know of the Army I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it is, then, yeah, FTA and ETS and let ‘em figure out why they can’t get enough peeps to maintain readiness. *** On top of this, there is the matter of crap like Stop Loss and the successful elimination of media coverage of what the US government is doing with us in places like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Think whatever fake nonsense it is that you want to think about the fake media, but back in the day, the fake media is what ended Vietnam.
