Military retirement is not a Entitlement, it was earned! Our benefits aren't some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits = free health care, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days - now THAT'S welfare. And Congress has the nerve to call a Military retirement an Entitlement? Re-post if you are sick of their stuff, and ashamed of our "leaders"!!!!!!
