Put in 21 years Air Force

My vac book is almost as thick as an old NYC phone book.

About that readiness, fun fact via The Oxford Companion to American Military History

Revolutionary War: Casualty rate due to disease, 90% of the total number
Civil War: 71.4% per 1K
WWI: 16.5% per 1K
WWII: .6% per 1K

That significant drop in WWI in great part was because to a man the US Army was vaxx'd for typhoid, once called "the soldier's disease".

As far as this ole sarge is concerned, every one of those idiots should have had their 214 the same day. "You didn't read the contract, did you bunkie. With very little wiggle room, it's Orwellian. 'What isn't forbidden is mandatory'."

Coming soon, Ken Burns' "The Great Walmart Toilet Paper Stampede" mini documentary

"My dear Karen, as I stand on line here in this darken parking lot ... If I do not return, remember me whenever you flush the john."

Thank you for posting this n/t
