Just spoke with a GI visiting from Baquba

Seems like a good idea to learn stuff first hand. Here's the brief version:

  • the GI bill's a great idea, should support a vet's kids. (I gotta find out.) He likes that Obama supports the troops, shook his head regarding McCain
  • they got enough vehicle and body armor, and can improvise as needed
  • Halliburton/KBR have a problem delivering hygienic water and food
  • GIs have to knock at doors, not kick 'em in, and that gets the guys killed
  • They like the Blackwater soldiers as individuals, but really resent that the mercenaries get paid much more for less work and fewer risks

the mercenaries has always been a huge issue for enlistees.
they have better working conditions, better pay, more freedom(IE they can quit), get better support(equipment, tools, and parts).
it comes down to one thing:jealousy
