    Sorry to both of you...you should have joined the oldest seagoing service where we worried more about saving lives than how we looked doing it. ;)....but we still looked damn good doing it.

    I must have been on a different "planet" of the military or something... My father was a general and he was in his dress blues at least twice a month for some something; retirements, graduations, greeting officials and politicians, etc. There was always a decent group of troops dressed out with him; proud as fuck to be standing there too. I always enjoyed seeing that uhm... combination of grit and polish.

    Actually, the things that a General does is much different than what your average enlisted does. And yes, at that rank, there is a lot of pomp and circumstance going on.

    History does repeat itself. I remember watching the Pentagon Papers with crowds watching military tanks and planes performing to a cheering crowd. I thought how moronic that this would take place. Here we are decades later, the greatest nation spending millions to put on a military show.
