Default Re: Anybody in the military?????

I'm a U.S. Marine and I'm very involved in the war efforts. I won't say that I agree with any of it, or that I agree with the president's very existance, but I'm affiliated. I won't state any personal opinions within this thread right now cause I don't see a need to. But I will say that any and every "country" requires a military. Fortunately for us in the U.S., for now, it's all voluntary. This is what makes it so powerful right now.

Some rich people join the military to defend what they possess.
Some rich people join the military for its professional conditioning, corporate america looks at military experience as an extra check in the box for their executives.
A lot of caucasians join the military for self pride.
A lot of poor people (like me) joined the military because it was the most gainful employment opportunity.
The reasons very, you'd be surprised.
I know several people who had never seen a Black person "In real life" until they joined the military.
I can go on and on, but I gotta go.

Take it easy
