I am from a military family too. My experience somewhat more distant than yours but it is military nonetheless. Maybe it’s the officer vs enlisted thing which made me 'needle' you. Not sure. I reread your article & there is no reason to think it but I still get that feeling. Perhaps it has to do with this thing I wrote awhile back. In any case, seventy million plus voted for the man so it really doesn’t matter who you or I voted for. I personally got annoyed and wrote in Bernie Sanders at the last minute.
