And so what is your point? Yes, the Heritage foundation is a biased think tank that is funded by the G.O.P. to promote the G.O.P. And yes, the poor to middle class are overrepresented as a socioeconomic category than the rich. But your assertion that we serve out of desperation is as much of a fallacy as the assertions of the Heritage foundation. I have served for over eleven years now with some of the finest men and women to ever call themselves Americans. Some have given their lives. None have done so out of desperation. Many of us (including myself) do not agree with our current strain of foreign policy. Yet many of us understand that the concept of a volunteer armed force that heeds the call of a civilian, freely elected government is more precious than the policy whims of any one administration. And while I will not make the gross generalization that everyone who shares my uniform shares my opinions, I would kindly ask you to stop making uninformed generalizations about me.
