Maryann, you are preaching to the choir. Yes. We know this, but the public didn't and frankly still doesn't need to know. What disturbs me is our politicians that are acting surprised. I have always said that I think everyone should work for the government at some point, if only for 2 years - at the Local, State or Federal level as a military or civilian. Too often our elected officials on both sides of the aisle don't even have a clue about what they are complaining about or the impacts of things they want to eliminate or cut - let alone, give military strategic advice when they were never in the military or worked for DoD themselves.
