Some Service members that I've talked too have said that they will leave the military (ETSing/retiring) depending on who gets voted into office. Does that play a role into your decision/plans?

I served under Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton and Bush. Never let the POTUS dictate your career.

We serve our country, despite the fact that we may not like some administrations.

SPC (Join to see), when I enlisted on 9AUG69, Lyndon B. Johnson was President, and when I was assigned to the Retired Reserve on 11MAY98, Bill Clinton was President. In between, I served at the pleasure of Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. In my opinion, these were some of the greatest and also some of the worst presidents to ever be elected. I never let the man in office be the deciding factor as to whether I would continue to serve or not. MSgt (Join to see) CW4 Angel C.

The key to making the military a career is focusing on your piece of the pie. That's your team, squad, platoon, and company. Your big picture would be battalion, BCT, and Division/Corps. Most of us Soldiers will never deal with higher echelons, especially POTUS. Your company level leadership will impact your everyday life like no one in Washington can. I say do your 20 and come enjoy retirement with the rest of us!!!

Thank you. It's so much simpler if there's only one chain of command. Whew! That stuff is so far beyond me. I mean......thank you, sir....
