I work at WPAFB. I often interact with lieutenants and captains at AFRL, and master sergeants on the flight-line. They're some of the best people I've worked with. I find them to be more humble, hand-working, and ethical than many of the civil servants.

I remember reading, somewhere, that there is not one who is good, no not one...
There is a "Good Person Test" floating around out there....everyone I've ever seen take it, fails, quickly.

I guess it's all in the way Bill Clinton defines "good".

USAF 20 years (1987 - 2007). Best decision I made in my life was walking into the OKC recruiters office and raising my hand. Brought structure and purpose into my life. It was also where I met my first three ex-wives. Looking for the fourth one now.... :D

You are winning nothing. You are seizing on a vanishingly small percentage of service members who are bad apples. In a population as large as the military is, that is inevitable. I don't know what your purpose here is, but unless it is to make yourself look foolish you are failing.
