U.S. Military Officers, Soldiers: Better Educated And Paid Than Those They Serve [Infographic]
By Geoffrey Ingersoll
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: brainwashed.
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.
