Save your anti military /administration views for topics where they are applicable and you may not make yourself such an easy target for Seruzawa's derision.

It was just a statment, and a question. I'am not anti military, just seems they are more concerned with getting their worth out of them.

As I gave today's reoccurent safety training brief on hearing conservation I watched their eyes glaze over. I jack them up in the shop when I see them not using their PPE. I can watch over them on the job. I can't talk them out of the 600 for a first bike. The training is good only if taken to heart, and some do. You can't protect people from themselves, well you could but then you'd be one of them ...
