    I don't know - to a certain extent I can believe some of this but it does have a ring of whining. What do you think?

    Well 13 years of war where not much progress is really made can be good at lowering morale.

    Low morale comes from the way the military handles its people, addresses issues, promotes (or doesn't promote), assigns folks and listens (or doesn't listen to) feedback.

    When there's a hiring slowdown, and the military has more applicants than it knows what to do with, it can afford to be crappy. But when people have other options... not so much.
