Great stuff. The most important lesson I learned from the military (I was Ranger Bat not SF) was that you should never complain unless you have a better solution to offer.

I think of this constantly today as I see everyone complaining and bickering, all without ever having any better idea for a solution. Half the time, maybe more than half, the sad fact of the matter is that an unsavory thing is being done because a tough decision had to be made in a situation here there really was no “good” decision…just the best among a bunch of crappy ones.

but, it’s always much easier to complain about the decision makers in that situation. It’s harder to find actual solutions to things.
