I don't see the military defending the country, but the drug war, yes. My husband and are veterans, out in 1992. As we know of, there have been no wars to win or to defend our country since Truman. And our country is in worst shape and taken over by commies and socialism, and masons, secret societies. So, I certainly don't see any defending going on. I would recommend no one join. Those who do are looking for money, schooling and it is a rotten place to go for that. Now we are supporting porn.
