Markos "Screw them" Zuniga has written an article about his military service. He insists, towards the end of the article that he would not sign up to today's military, even going so far as to add, "Lest this sound like an ad for the Army".
Heaven forbid someone think him pro-Army!
Why wouldn't he join up today? Well, it's all the fault of those neo-cons! Today, if you join up, chances are you'll see action. And for Zuniga that's just not what the Army is there for. Oh no, for him the military is not there to fight for freedom, to defend America- it's all about exploring your potential for personal growth-
"One of the many tragedies of the Iraq War is that the military is no longer a viable option for those needing a boost up the socio-economic ladder, making college a possibility, granting people the confidence and experience that has paid such huge dividends for countless veterans."
Wow. The Left really doesn't understand the military at all, even when it's had some personal experience of it.
