duty Naval officer, I am dismayed. Crushed, really.
The military has been very good to me. I loved living overseas (youngest son was born in Japan) and I did a ton of really awesome things that a boy from Podunk, Nowhere never could have imagined.
I am proud to have been a Naval Officer.
So it is with real pain that I advise my sons to avoid the military. So while both would make great JAG officers, I just think it is no longer a culturally good for them to serve. The culture of the military has very much putrified. The leadership has revealed itself to be culturally cowardly lions.
It is no longer what it was.
I have great hope that it will rebound. Eventually. But, unfortunately, today is not that day… <sigh>
