LMAO!!! A Buck Sarge that pissed off a 3 star General and a Col. before retiring ---lol Sadly, today's military is about making rank than rather than getting things done. I have seen to many Pouges (staff sgt and officers) over the years with their thumb up their ass. I said to my self...I wanted to be in the military and try to balance a trading career. I keep telling myself it was not a mistake. I never cared about rank...Hell, I had more college eduction than most the officers appointed above me . It was a huge sacrifice for me to stay in the National Guard and fore go large opportunity. Luckily, I have still have opportunity to me alone after retirement . At least I am still young yet, with a lot of things to do. I am not bitter. ...just trying to look forward. It is really heart-felt of those 56 men that gave everything (the whole world owe them everything...not just Americans). Today, most Americans play a charade and really don't give a fuck. Are republic is lost due to laziness...at least I was not a part of it.
