I’ve been talking to a lot of people around my area who have friends or famaly in Iraq (standard service or national guard/reserves). I alwase ask how the person is doing and if they were in the service before or after 9/11, and i’m starting to see a pattern. Some of the people say that there friends/famaly are realy shaken up and the war is messing them up. The majority of these folks were in the service BEFORE 9/11. Others say there friends/famaly were fine and doing there job. The Majority of these people joined the service AFTER 9/11.
I’ll let you draw what conclusion you wish from this, but I believe that a secondary effect of the war is that people will realize that the Military is for war, not a college fund.
