President tells Army-Navy players that service can be deferred until after pro careers On Saturday, the current Commander-in-Chief touted while attending the annual Army-Navy game a shift in policy that permits athletes at the service academies to delay their service. President Trump told the players that they now have the chance “to make a fortune, and after you’re all finished with your professional career, you’ll go and you’ll serve and everybody’s thrilled.” What do you all think...good policy or not? Maybe we can get something other than the normal split on this one... I say it is bad policy for two reasons... First, it says that making your fortune is more important than serving your country and full fulling your commitment to the country. Second, what if their career last 20 years and they are 40 plus when they enter active duty? What if they are injured and no long qualify to be on active duty? I think this just sends a bad message.
