Congrats to Former State Senator Brown

For making Bird Colonel in the Maryland National Guard back in August, I hadn't heard the good news til I cracked open the Boston Globe this morning.
Must be a heady feeling, seven whole days in Afghanistan dodging mosquitos in full camies and a nice phat pension coming your way whenever the ride is over.
And all for what amounts to a part time job as a lawyer in the Judge Advocate's Division it's a sweet deal that would bring tears to the eyes of Billy Bulger himself.
To think there are veterans wandering the streets homeless with not one tenth of Colonel Brown's retirement prospects...makes yuh think don't it?
Oh to live in a Republic where the Lawyers are compensated at Four Times the Rate of the National Heroes!!
