NOTE FROM KILROY:
Looks like the country dodged a bullet this week with Congress
possibly shutting down the Federal Government over the
annual budget. However, they only “kicked the can down the
road” a couple of weeks, so this may come back to haunt us.
Many federal workers are worried they’ll be without a job
and a paycheck for who knows how long? Luckily, those who are
military veterans have special skills to deal with situations like that.

The Top 5 Things Military Vets
Could Do in a Government Shutdown

5> Hock those MIL-SPEC screwdrivers and toilet seats they’ve
hoarded for years.

4> Just like when they were still in: Make and sell very special
brownies.

3> Become drill instructors at protest marches.

2> Return to active duty, because the military aren’t subject to
the shutdown. CONTRACTORS ON THE OTHER HAND ARE SCREWED. But
who’s bitter?

and the Number 1 Thing Military Vets Could Do in a Government Shutdown…
1> Successfully use psychological operations on Congress, unlike
the Army.
