Marine Talk

With so much in the news lately about Gates and his cuts to the armed forces, I thought I would text my very own military advisor and see what the men and women with their feet on the ground are thinking.

Text to Alex: What is everyone saying about sending 1400 Marines to Afghanistan? What about Gates’ proposed cuts to Marine force?

Response from Alex: I don’t know. I spent last night talking drunk marines out of hanging bicycles from the pull up bars.

It may not represent a global view on military spending, but it does illustrate a certain aspect of military life.
