    I agree with Keller on this issue. Insane waste is an understatement.

    You know...this makes me sick. I had to pay for the majority of my education out of pocket.

    It reminds me of a story I read the other day of a Navy Officer who was dishonerably discharged for becoming a sex-offender. He's still recieving a pension..my tax-dollars hard at work. They should leave these sex-offenders to rot in prison. As if HBO and a nice workout after lunch isn't punishment enough.

    If it wasn'f for dumbass spending like this, then their might be more money out there.

    One cannot be dishonorably discharged AND receive a retirement check. Something's wrong with that story.

    But I agree it sucks for contributing members to society who have to bust their ass to get through college while sex offenders can get it for free.

    The Gunny is right. And IIRC Commissioned and Warrant Officers are not Dishonorably Discharged. The proper term is Dismissal From the Service. And, nope, no retirement bennies.

    BTW, I'd just as soon shoot the bastard. Take the body out to the dumpster and hang a sign on it that reads "failed human being". No retirement bennies there either.

    ok...I'll have to check that story again...I probably misread something. If I find it, I'll try and post the link.

    I agree with your method :cool:
