the chaplain ? speak your mind ? there is no speaking your mind in the military. there is do or die ! mr astore may speak his mind now. speaking one's mind implies stating directly that military ethos and ambitions can embrace anything other following the current chain of command. not gunna' happen ! go along or get out ! had he spoken in opposition as i did he would have been reduced to E-1, classified as RE-4, and booted out. hot air at best !
