The Military downsizing letter (April 8) is an insult to all of us that ever served in the military.
Just what does the writer mean by a wonderful welfare program? Welfare is defined as a government program for poor or unemployed people that helps pay for their food, housing, medical costs, etc.
When would anyone on welfare be willing to lay down their life for their country? Who on welfare would work for months at a time in a combat zone or here in the country with no days off and no overtime? Who on welfare would be willing to spend months and years away from their families?
Our military is not a welfare program.
