“I was often jealous because he had four enlisted people helping him all the time.”
— Former defense secretary Robert Gates explaining the perks of military rank that he witnessed while living next door to Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He told a Chicago conference Thursday that he would complain about it to his wife: “Mullen’s got guys over there who are fixing meals for him, and I’m shoving something into the microwave. And I’m his boss.”

This is interesting. I had a friend who was in the military but I could never see him acting like that. I don't think the amount of help you receive at home is contingent on your rank within the military. That's just my opinion though. Blast Pro. | http://www.blastpro.com.au
