Angry from seeing Scholarships for dependent children. I am seeing too many civilian trying to find their ways through education, just to see themselves in debt through student loans and cannot find work. This just doesn't seem fair to me when the true backbone of our country is from the hardwork and ingenuity of our enterprising civilians forefathers. I believe that our country's priorities truly need to be shifted back into this direction.
After being on both sides of the fence, I have more on the side of the civilian. My heart wrenches when I'm hearing about military dependent preferences and more focus on military families when most (if not ) all their initial life expenses are paid for.
I used to work in the downtown area and saw the reality of how many people are out of work, not having any transportation, and begging for work. Many of these people are very well educated and very well willing to work, but are truly invisible because of no public attention is being focused on them. As for myself, I couldn't rejoin the military because I was a single mother. I don't believe that I should ever give my daughter up for anyone just to become part of the cause. But this unfairness exists!! I hate this!
I believe that more attention needs to be focused on building the esteems of our civilians to give them empowerment to change the direction of our country through free enterprise and possibly create the jobs that our country needs to get back onto its feet being $14 trillion in national debt.
While I ask for your opinion(?) for question sake, I am working with a bank in partnership in creating ways for civilians to recover their incomes in times of financial disaster.
