Our Soldiers Need Us. Defeatism and pessimism is the wrong approach when frustrated by govt bureaucracies. Surrendering to the bureaucrats and encouraging others to quit or avoid service, is a disservice to the soldiers who need us now. For those who want to serve, there are many opportunities to do great things even if that service is only for a few months or several years. Saluting a fat nurse does not bother me it makes them feel important and they leave me alone. I dont let my own need for prestige interfere with my responsibilities to patients or other staff, regardless if others view pts and enlisted as white trash or gangsters. I like them all. It is better to be a part of the solution, rather than whining about the problem.
