MOTHERS, beg your sons to leave the military NOW! While reseaching what Colonel Douglas MacGregor said in his scathing critique of Petraeus, I ran across this, "Colin Powell: Not The Man You Think", published Oct/Nov 1995 issue of The US Veteran Dispatch by Tom Ashworth and Ted Sampley. How people like Patraeus and Powell move up thru the ranks sinkens the men whose lives are really on the line. Petraeus nor Powells lives WERE ever on the line, just their advancement. I know the men here will be interested in how America has been fooled.
