I am very glad to see that Julian Sanchez has made this point. The idea that our armed forces’ volunteer status means that those who are a part of them have chosen whatever comes their way, and that they and their families have no right to complain or object to policies that will have them stationed overseas and in harm’s way indefinitely, is appallingly stupid. (Then again, so’s Bill Kristol.)
