    There is no reason for any non military member to EVER leave US soil so far as I'm concerned.

    Nope, nor would I ever be a client of anyone who does. I'll be 40 in July. I've been outside the US twice in my life; both to Canada as a child. I've been off the North American mainland only once; my trip to Puerto Rico with my fiance this last Sumner. I don't see that changing any time soon, especially since neither of us have a passport.

    I've been to Europe, now admittedly, as a soldier in the Army, and today, I would be careful about where I went overseas, but I don't think it's good to say that everyone never travel either....But, each to his own....:

    You're right that everyone gets their own opinion. I see no need to ever leave the US. Even as a student of medieval history I find no reason to leave the USA.

    Well of course, and, one joins the military by choice, accepts an ambassadorship by choice. It's not as though this guy decided Pakistan was a keen place to take holiday.
