I was actually very seriously considering joining the Army Reserve about 2 months ago. I am a real big believer that there sould be soem sort of national service program, mainly to get people exposed to a wider cross section of types of people and to learn to respect elders. Not much better than a drill seargant to do that to you. Of course, it would be hypocritical of me to support such a program without having done it myself.
They also cut a great deal with the GI bill on college tuition. And it even applies to loans, so I could help pay down the obscene amount of cash I spent on college while serving my country and getting in shape at the same time.
I don’t know what to do now. I really don’t want to go gallivanting around the Middle East, but I don’t want to be sitting on my ass waiting to get gassed in DC either. You can make biological weapons with household items. It’s not that difficult. Well, we’ll see how things progress in the next few weeks. Only God knows what’s going to happen next.
