**** Lavish Military Pensions, Stop Military Welfare ****
Google navytimes Military-pension-would-hard-match
I know someone that went through ROTC and ended their military career after 20 years with 40K pension for life. They are also working another military related civilian job now and eligible for another pension in 20 years.
The googled navytimes link reinforces my experience.
US defense budget is $1000 billion per year in 2011 it was $354 billion in 2001.
Us cannot afford this defense welfare.
Military get free housing, medical, electric and food. Some get allowances if they are not living on base.
The perks also continue after retirement.
In last 40 years, no one was forced to enter the military via the draft. They chose to do so.
I am posting this because some jackal pos attacked me, lied about me and provided nothing of merit.
MustyMindMuse: You are on ignore. you have offered nothing but personal attacks. NO data. Nothing to refute any fact presented. I can see you still eagerly respond but sorry, you lack any real contribution and are not worth any more time.
IMO you need to open your mind, face truth and stop personal attacks and TRY to make a point.
"Success in life is measured by one's ability to deal with reality"
IMO you are not very successful.
I have posted facts. Undisputable. You have continually attacked me and provided no counter argument. Nothing of merit. Just your misplaced emotion.
Grow up face the facts. The US military have grown from $354 billion in 2001 to $1000 billion in 2011. Us can't afford this military state.
