    I read this comment on another forum...though some of you would like to comment:

    So, one who joined the army, instead of going to college, has a 50-50 chance of being lazy and/or dumb?

    Well, I am not sure what it is like now, but even when I was in we had a lot of college grads as enlisted men that joined for the challenge and out of a sense of patriotism. If this were the 70's, I might agree with the statement. But you have to be pretty damn smart to survive in today's Army and you sure as hell can't be lazy. I guess they are suggesting that carrying a book-bag to class is more difficult than carrying a 60 pound ruck-sack up a mountain in Afghanistan.

    What idiots.
