Another bit of too few doing too much for the rest of us

1% of us have had involvement with the Shrub's wars.  The generals wanted it this way--all volunteer, many tours--it's easier on them and the command crowd.  The pols and generals did not want a draft--more voters would be involved--that might shorten the wars and end the cash cow.

Now we have soldiers and vets committing suicide, living with mangled bodies, coping with shredded minds (PTSD), and manifesting really dangerous driving habits.   DOD and the VA need to retrain everyone who drove vehicles in the wars.  Safety over there equals death for themselves and other drivers back home.
