As a product of the all volunteer Army I enjoyed working with professionals that wanted to be there and did their jobs well; but as a Nation, were we wrong? I ask this because it would seem so many people have no investment in America, no "Dog in the Fight" as it were. I heard a quote that an unnamed Marine Colonel said "The Marine Corps is at War, America is at Wal Mart." There would seem to be a lot of truth in that. Perhaps required service would again awaken Patriotism in it's true nature a pride in what we are and can be.
