Occupy Wall Street and Defense Industry
« on: October 19, 2011, 02:59:05 pm »
I know we have many ex-military and active duty folks on the forum and I have spent my career in the defense industry.  This came in one of my trade journals today and I thought it would be enlightening for those not familiar with the "defense-industrial complex."  Even though I am currently unemployed due to force drawdowns and budget cuts, I still fiercely believe the work I have done (and hope to do again in the future) is critical and important for those on the front line.  As John Keller points out, if not for industry our US troops would be much worse off.  I don't know of many (if any) in the defense industry that do what we do purely for money.  Yes, businesses are in business to make money but the people in the defense industry are driven by other motives.

Enough of the soap box - just want to point out that not all business is based upon corporate greed:

Thank you to those who are and have served.
