Don't get me wrong- I am not against the active duty little enlisted who this is their only job in life being compensated money and health beneifits for their enlistment- The US governemnt/military IS their employer. The life of active duty military is very stressful and especially if they have a family
What I am against is those like the CEO mentioned above. He is a war profiteer. He is making money off the war, he's greedy doesn't think his CEO pay is enough. Any reservist has another job inaddition to their reserve duty, which if not called to active duty, is only 1 weekend per month. This guy is a CEO- most assuridly has a Business degree or he would not be a CEO. He is not over in where ever he was- toting a gun looking for insurgents or hunting down burried bombs in a hummer- an IED hunter, that role is designated to the highly trained career military, which he is not. He is in some office on a military instilation shuffling papers for daily supplies and workforce assignments( administrative duty- he's the cpl Klinger or Radar and probably dressed up as such with his stockings and teddy bear) with the fan blowing on his greedy face. His most challenging task for the day is remembering to take his doxycycline for his malaria prophylaxis. This money monger is not getting shot at!! Although he deserves to be!!
