Being in the miltary - especially the Canadian miltary - is a very thankless job.
You get shot at. You risk serious personal injury. You get violently seasick. You risk infection from diseases with horrifically unpronounceable names.
But for all the trouble, you'd still get no respect.
Especially from the sheeple in the media, most of them with hippie-critical ideals about helping others and the means to do so.
And sometimes, even the government is getting into the act.
Right about now, we Canadians have donated CDN$400-million to the tsunami cause, yet not much money has been spent. So what's going on here?
