Most U.S. troops, vets would steer kids away from service

In just 7 years, Obama has thoroughly corrupted the greatest military in the world — by purging officers, driving Christians away, using the military as a playground for sex and gender social engineering, and cuts in military budget and benefits. The latter is not about the economy or the national debt.

Everyone else doesn’t know anyone who serves and feel it’s “someone else’s job” (taking security for granted) anymore and don’t join.
