    My uncle joined the army in 1938, he was 16 years old. Before Pearl Harbor he was in Burma flying with the Flying Tigers, a captain at 19 years old. He flew throughout the war, and after that the Berlin Air Lift. When he came home no airline would hire him, not even Flying Tiger Air Freight. He didn't even have a highschool education. Try and honor him.

    Today's military have 1000 more opportunties than when I served. My nephew went from E1 to lcdr with time off to get a degree. He now double dips in retirement at 40. Good for him but the military was not like that for Vietnam guys. We were dumped.

      Oh nonsense. I'm of your era. I went from E-1 to CDR (O-5) with Time Off for *four* Degrees - three from MIT. I retired from the Navy at age 44 and I am now fully retired and quite wealthy!
      You were not dumped... you....
