Even if you disagree with all my above points and unwaveringly and unreasonably (in my humble opinion) believe that uniformed service personnel should be treated as second-class citizens, kindly bear in mind that the overwhelming majority of uniformed personnel did not choose to be so.
They were conscripted against their will to serve the nation. Would it be fair if I were to force an identity on your unwilling self and subject you to the rules and regulations that come with it (to all of you who agree with that article)? I didn’t think so.
