26. Worth it?

I doubt if the powers that be think ANY of these young people in the service are worth it. Cannon fodder, from day 1. I would not encourage any young relative of mine to enlist, and I have had two husbands serve, one army one air force. When people such as W and 5 deferrment Cheney start useless wars, let them send their own family members into battle. By the way, didn't McCain's VP nominee "desert" her position as Alaska's governor? She did the state a huge favor, and avoided prosecution, but that's beside the point. Since her abdication she has not shut her big flapping yaw about the Obama administration.
