Angry, I'm with you on your general sentiment. Recent generations seems to be lazy and selfish. I don't know how you get back to a better sense of community and service.

Of course I'm a grumpy old bastard that keeps the kids ball when it comes over the fence.....

I know 3 kids that have joined the service in the last 2 years and 2 of them served in Iraq. These kids come from middle income families and did not do it because they had to but because they wanted to. I myself did not serve so that makes me lazy, selfish, wandering through life aimlessly, and with no discipline or direction?

Dude............we're only talking about a couple of months dude! You need to relax! I mean, you should consider this as a part of patriotism. As part of a service to your country. As part of keeping your democracy AND YOUR freedoms preserved for future generations. What if our next President takes a vacation and decides to NOT read the security report because he's to busy chasing hedge hogs into holes? We don't want another 9/11/01, but you, no we, need to be ready if there is one.

And its only a couple of months dude! Relax!

How is training guys for three months going to stop another 9/11. Are we going to make these guys fly around on every jet taking off? We have more than enough guys serving this country (3 million) if we really needed we could pull them from all parts of the world.
