    What was your MOS? There are a number of "Communications" MOSs. What I am really interested in is what your MOS was when you "kept important people safe from harm".

    Whichever MOS, it was to support the 11Bs.

    "just not as fanatical as you"... of course you're not, you're worse. I criticized Obama for things when he $#@!ed up, but you are incapable of even having the ability to recognize that Trump doesn't walk on water.

    You're not going to explain the term, because it is obvious why you used it, it was an attempt to follow the same right wing talking point about the government having departments that they don't think are necessary. That's how much a partisan you are, in a question that was not political in nature, you couldn't even shelve your partisanship in your response.

    Two times in the past, one in the AF during and after Vietnam, two tours, the other training for a position I decided not to take. After the AF I really didn't want to work for the government.

    Have had friends that worked for government. One quit because he couldn't get anything done or it would make others look bad, the other works at the VA and the only way (before Trump) you could get fired was if you became a whistle-blower.

    Absolutely correct.

    There are two branches in the Army... Infantry and Support.

    Everything exists to support the ground force.

    I'd like to know two things

    (1) What was the motivation of the OP in changing the question
    (2) Where did the OP go after he was called out for the question.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Sort of like you calling everyone you disagree with a white nationalist and racist?

    Stop projecting your foibles on others.
