"Service to Your Country" is bullsh*t. My country should be serving me, not the other way around.
Our country should be serving us. It is not the governments job to make men and women of our young folks. How bout we educate them properly so they can go out and do what needs to be done in the world without the government calling the shots.
I know a lot of vets, most suffered for their service and gained nothing in return besides a few benefits and some dicey healthcare.
