Yes they are.

They're commissioned upon graduation. Further, completing the academy commits to six years of service. If they don't, for reasons of their own choosing, such as disobeying an order, they have to pay back Uncle for that four years of free college.

It's called dismissal for cause. Equivalent to an other than honorable discharge for enlisted. Doesn't put any gold stars on your resume.

It's certainly a stupid order. It'll be tougher to argue it's an illegal one.

Or a close shot gun blast to the chest

That should take care of any virus in the lungs

Shot days were always memorable

We TIs aka No Neck Monsters would take a small paper bag with us because at least one of our Eager Young Space Cadets would hyperventilate when they clapped eyes on the Gun.

You must have missed the five pack hit - five syringes duct taped together.

Thankfully NH's primary has come and gone, so not risk there.

If I'm still slutting around 3 Nov, I will vote and, because I love doing it, I'll be at our polling place, suited up if necessary. So will Hubster.

Courageous women and men have fought, died, marched and stood in lines for hours for this right, obligation and privilege. I can at least show up -- for them and my country. I'll do what I can to clean the swamp Moron and his lackeys have made.

Quoting a good man and a great president, "ENOUGH!"

Glad you enjoyed it.

The music makes it.
