    It's real easy to say you did something special from the safety of the big open ocean.
    Did you ever in your miserable life here about Navy SEALS, Fast Boats in the Mekong Delta?...Have you ever been to that wall in DC with the 58,000 names on it........Count the Navy names on there sometime.......

    I don't give a **** if you put me down because I just consider the far out left wing source its coming from but when you put down the whole military and say the people who served and made it a career don't deserve the benefits they get well that is where I draw the line and I know its easy for you to sit there safely behind your monitor and put the military down but you would never do it to anyone's face...........

    Your the one that painted me as trashing the military, which I didn't do.

    All I said was that it's bull crap that there are special rules just for military that we don't get.

    You know, some people join just for the money and the benefits, do they deserve those special considerations?

    Well, right or wrong, sailors gotta stick together in foreign ports. Do what you gotta do Chief.

    I think people overestimate the benefits allowed to our career military. The Post Office workers get a much better deal.

    There ain't no money in the Military......When I joined I made $70. a month....When I retired as and E7 in 1977 my base pay was not even a thousand dollars a month.......Some of us joined because we love our country and considered it a privilege to serve it......

    You are really unbelievable.........I really don't want to talk to you anymore I will find my ass banned........

    I'll close with the Branch of my FRA lodge is 29 in Bremerton Wash....come visit us sometime.........

    Hey, all career government workers get a pretty good deal. Far batter than your average Joe. Civil service workers. Post office workers. County employees. I think, of them all, the military lifer, all things considered, get's the shorter end of the stick than the others.

    Too bad we all can't work for the government and get those good bennies. If we did, that would make us a somewhat a socialist nation would it not?

    I understand your frustration. It is valid. However, don't begrudge our career vets anything they are afforded. They deserve it. They are the last one's we should be bitching about.

    Yea but you chose to join, you accepted that pay.
    No one twisted your arm and made you.

    If you were drafted, that's a different story

    I made 817.00 a month plus VHA and BEQ. That was before my child support deductions. I bought myself that floating inner-tube I always wanted and a can of Planter's peanuts..

    But what I DID get in the Navy, money couldn't buy.
