But yet 98% of the Armed Force have at least a high school dipolma vs 86% of the general population...and 71% of the general population cant serve due to being too fat, not strong enough, etc...
Even the dumbest job in the military these days requires a level of education, lack of criminal record, and mental/physical stamina that the vast majority of the population can't meet.
It gets real tiring seeing people shit on military personnel. It hasn't been that way since the big draw downs back after the conclusion of the first gulf war and the massive down sizing the miltiary has faced over the last three decades.
