Pretty sure I never said they were wrong for not doing it. Just sucks when anything costs more than last time ya paid.
Thank you for your service.

I know a lot of people who would disagree with that. I don't know why so many in the military get such a bad entitlement attitude.

A lot of people would agree with that. He didn't have an entitlement attitude. He was bummed that something that he got before he isn't getting anymore. He wasn't blaming them, or slamming them. He even defended them by saying they give a discount on tickets.

The entitlement attitude, while not right, is easy to see why they have it if you look around and try to understand. You can see why easily by looking at a few post on the forum.

I don't think he was whining. He even defended the resort. I think he was more than likely informing others. Oh well

F**king drama queens here!! FR4NKY, glad you could see the simple comment for what it was. Thank you. Can't use the word "military" without someone making it about liberal/conservative political BS.

As the saying goes, some people hear (or read, in this case) just to respond, not to understand.

PS: Not even really bummed about not getting (it in terms of entitlement)....just that it reduces the mammoth trips this year.

I do agree that many (NOT ALL OREVEN MOST) younger military folks think the world owes them everything. If that were true, then they aren't committed to simply "serving."

In the Corps, we call those that feel like the world owes them just because they exist "the army".

Interesting. In my experience the Corps is more full of themselves than any other Branch, by far.

Some of the people here can go fuck themselves, turning this into a political/entitlement issue.
