No respect for vets

Bearing Drift doesn't approve of an L.A. Times piece - trying to say our military personnel have a privileged life and get to live in "gated communities."
Today’s military enjoys a lifestyle that in many ways exceeds that of much of the rest of the country: regular pay raises and lavish reenlistment bonuses, free healthcare, subsidized housing and, after 20 years of service, generous retirement benefits unavailable to many other Americans.
Most Americans aren't being shot at on the job, either.

Let the dim witted author of that piece spend 30 days in a barracks rent free. See if the "gated community" meme still holds up?
