If you don't know, then don't ask...If you don't really want to hear my opinion on matters because they don't fit with your ideas on the military, then don't ask. If you don't like to be called on your BS because you are wrong, then don't ask. Finally, if the only depth of questions you feel to ask are along the lines of "did you kill anybody?" or "I heard it's not that bad"... then...you guessed it...don't ask!
