Thanks for posting this...........
One thing we should pay for as a country is the BENEFITS for our soldiers. Military Pay is CRAP..........one of the reasons our military is a good as it is, is the soldiers who put their time in KNOWING they will be taken care of for life.
I'd much rather my tax dollars pay for a soldier who as paid his or her dues, than for a welfare mom popping out CRACK addicted babies.
I REALLY hope this is not true, but it would not surprise me.
After all, this is what the LAST GREAT Democrat in office did:
This is how our military was decimated under Clinton, supported 100% by John Kerry
These were all Military CUTS.......part of Clinton's Peace Dividend.....
