Rotc Student Is Like An Indentured Servant?
a: An rotc student ~
b: an indentured servant
What: "Bourke goes on to compare an ROTC student to an "indentured servant" who sells away 4 years of his or her life to get an education. This implies that I don't want to enter the Navy, but am forced to by lack of funds. This is just not true. Becoming a naval officer is one of the best opportunities I will ever have, and even if I weren't offered any money, I would still stay in the program." This is a letter to the editor that is critical of the above comparison.
