I just stumbled on to this infographic and thought it was interesting, considering the stereotype that military members are dumb muscleheads—quick to follow orders, slow to think for themselves—or worse yet: brain washed.
From personal experience, I can say that every general officer I’ve ever met struck me as absolutely brilliant — and even the guys on the ground, small unit leaders, have demonstrated an ability to problem solve in a timely, and often adaptive, manner.
In short: not only are we vastly more educated, per capita, but we make more money.
Read it and weep.
