I'm not much of a writer, so forgive me if I ramble on.
We're just winding down from a very good Veterans' Day; emotions are still running, especially for most all vets.
I think of this F&F situation and it makes my blood boil. An administration that says combat wounded vets should pay for their own insurance to cover their wounds, disrespects fallen warriors by 'tossing' the rose instead of 'placing' it on the wreath, not respecting the flag, etc.
My point is; do we really think anything will be done as discipline to those involved? A skipper's cruiser hits a marker buoy and is told to retire. A worker in the shipyard is caught in a compromising position and is fired. Working in the DOD for 34 yrs, I have seen this go on first hand. The higher the chain of command, the lesser punishment.
IF anything happens it will be one of two things: they will be moved to another part of the administration, or they will be ASKED to retire where they will receive full benifets. I hope that I'm wrong, but.............
