Lately it occurs to me...

I just realized that most active military commanders - those who, essentially, have the power to level a small country - are pretty much limited to serving for less than 30 years. In addition, any misstep on their part - social, political, or military - can result in their removal from command, and discharge into civilian life.

Compare and contrast with 40-year political hack Charles Rangel.

Just sayin'.
