Call to Service

As far as I can remember, there hasn't been a single plea for people to enlist in the armed services from a prominent figure since this began. It isn't simply that Operation Yellow Elephant was a failure, it's that they didn't try. We're paying record amounts in retention bonuses (not something I have a problem with), and now extending troop deployment times from one year to 15 months.

But, no patriotic call to service. Not even from St. McCain of Arabia.
