OH THE SHEER HORROR OF IT ALL!

Veterans groups are upset about the cut to military pensions in the proposed budget deal. They see it as a broken promise and a sign that veterans are considered politically expendable.
I mean how can we ask a fully fit and capable person to spend 25 or more years still able to work and earn six or more figures using the experience, training and educations paid for by the taxpayer and not get EVERY GODDAMNED PENNY OF FULL PENSION FOR EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES?
I say if you leave at 20 years, they you get a 20% pension until you reach “retirement” age then 100%. Especially if you make six figures flying for a major airline or working for MarAd or Lockheed Martin or master of a drillship! The military retirement system is a MULTIHEADED HYDRA that no mortal man can kill but several if its heads need to be lopped off and what the Congress just did wasn’t even giving it a nosebleed but how the military is howling like they have been impaled by this!
If injured in combat then 100% pension but only those who “gave” their blood to the country should be so rewarded!
