Huffington Post Idiot

 Well, David Wood has officially been put on my doo-doo list.  He has called the military lifestyle and benefits “lavish”.  Really?!?  What in the hell is this guy smoking?

He says that military bases, housing, support services, family counseling, and others are considered lavish.  I guess he forgot all about the hardships that the military and their families endure.  What about the deployments?  What about never knowing if your spouse will come home?  There are no soldiers getting pampered during long ass deployments.  Maybe he forgot to look at the pay charts…they are listed online for all to see.  I guess he doesn’t know about all the training and school either.  Yea, that’s more time away from family.

Housing on post ain’t that extravagant.  Where did he get that shit from?  Support services and family counseling…those are part of a lavish lifestyle???  Has this idiot ever endured a deployment?  Has he had to leave his family for 12 months?  Has he had to see the horrible sights of war that no soldier can ever forget?  This guy is a real piece of work.  I understand he has covered certain conflicts since 1970 and I am not saying that is easy…but trust me…this idiot makes a lot more money than an active duty soldier.  So, who is living a more lavish lifestyle?

Way to go Wood!!!  Cramming your own foot so far down your throat has been amusing.  I can only hope…with your “lavish life”, all your money, your cute awards, your little important inner circle of people, and all the other life riches…you gain a more accurate description of the military lifestyle and benefits.

    You can’t fix stupid.
    And to all those soldiers out there…..you and your families are one of the FEW things that I don’t mind my tax dollars being used for. Keep up the great work and accept my humble thank you for your many sacrifices and all you do for all of us.

  2. Good for you for setting the record straight…Wood has obviously exceeded his knowledge base on this one!

      Thank you! I really think he has. His income and lavish lifestyle exceed such a large percentage of military servicemen. I don’t understand why he would make statements like that.

    I don’t think it’s necessarily “lavish”, but it’s certainly not as horrible as many people make it out to be. My husband and I live in a nice apartment in San Diego with two cars (1 brand new) and full health insurance on a single income…his income. There aren’t a whole lot of people who can do that in Southern California.

      True. And I know there are those that claim the lifestyle is worse than it is… Wood should take the time to fully understand the hardships of this lifestyle before downing it though.
      Thanks for reading and I really appreciate your comment.

  4. Not to mention the stigma us as wives face. For most of the world we’re lazy,fat,bon-bon eating,money spending whores. Or how about explaining things to our kids that they couldnt possibly understand? Real lavish indeed! Preach it sister preach!
