Way to derail the thread again. So you're saying military medicine is not at all the same as being in the military ? You're not actually military as a military physician and nothing that involves the organization as a whole has anything to do with you?
22 year olds considering military scholarships for med school should only be concerned with not getting all 30 days of leave or not having the best residencies? They are completely exempt from the issues that their slightly younger counterparts will deal with when enlisting?
If you look at my past threads, you will probably realize that I am not a big fan of milmed. There are too many issues. If I post the most recent problem that I have run into, even the most ardent supporters would have to step back and think about it (can't do it now - maybe once I drop my resignation paperwork. It's a small world). However, your entry into this thread ["fighting Al Qaeda while our government sends them 100s of millions of dollars and weapons."] was way over the top, and borders on UCMJable if an AD person were to openly state such an opinion. Your clearance would certainly be in question. I am not arguing the validity of your opinions, or your right to express them. However, this is probably not the thread for it. Just because you don't like the US gov leadership, you served as PFC Snuffy for a few years, and you are a "pre-med" (whatever that actually means), doesn't mean that your opinion belongs in a thread discussing serving in the Medical Corps
