"When I was at the (Naval) Academy, downloading music was not considered an Honor Violation as there was no real legal interpretation of it as "stealing." But if things are different now, your buddy is putting you into a quandary (by…"

Todd Serveto replied to kpeckham's discussion Where does loyalty end?
"We have to draw a distinction between loyalty and covering for wrong doing. Loyalty ends at the point at which your allegiance to somebody begins to violate your integrity. Also, your debt of loyalty to a friend is superceded by your debt of loyalty…"

Steve Dallas replied to kpeckham's discussion Where does loyalty end?
"Bah, at A&M in the Corps we had "A cadet will not lie, cheat or steal, and will not tolerate those who do". The working interpretation of this was "A cadet will not lie, cheat or steal, and will not tolerate those who got…"

"The AF does very silly things just like that all the time, just ask anyone who "voluntarily" left the service with less than eight years to retirement. Flight screening at the academy isn't quite the same thing as full military…"

"I can't imagine the AF would not retain you for something if you graduated from the academy. I do know they are downsizing a great deal (my son is AF), and will let you get out for just about any reason now. I tend to think a PoliSci degree…"

kpeckham replied to Stephen Rausch's discussion I hate exercise, any suggestions?
"I agree. Don't run on a track you will feel slow and be bored. Run with an ipod in and something that takes your mind of the suck. If you want to get in shape learn to push yourself past the suck. Run until your lungs burn and your chest throbs…"

"I can't imagine that the US Air Force would spend all that money to educate you, get you to sign a contract, put you through flight school, and then let you walk away. I'm sorry, I just don't see it. Possible, yes, but rather…"

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
