Writes a friend of mine, an Army veteran:
9:39 am on November 12, 2013
Well on this Tuesday November 12, 2013, let me say thank you to all of the civilians who paid their taxes and thereby paid me whilst I played soldier for four years. You gave me food, shelter, clothing, lots of travel, and two months tuition at Yonsei University. You people are awesome. Oh, And thanks for paying for me to go to graduate school.
