In this short video from a leadership conference, then General Mattis responds to a question from the audience. The question is, “What would you like to see the American civilian world do to lessen the disproportionate burden on the Armed Services.” His response to the question in short is, “Service in combat to our nation is not a burden to us or our families. It’s an honor to do so, and we feel sorry for those who never make this commitment to their nation.”
What are your thoughts on the response from General Mattis to this question? Personally, I could not agree anymore with him.
