Based on the events at Fort Hood this week, a question has come to my mind. If a person wants out of the service badly enough to hire an attorney to accomplish his discharge, why does the Military refuse? In reality, would it not make more sense to let someone out with a discharge (even if it was considered dishonorable or general) than to refuse and have that person go on a shooting rampage? By the way, since I have never posted under the Military forum, I will take this opportunity to thank you all! I appreciate the commitment and sacrifice that servicemen and servicewomen and their families make and we all owe you more than we could ever hope to repay. If not for your service, we would not enjoy the quality of life and our freedom. Thank you and God bless you and your families!
