The stress that military families face under these circumstances are far greater than you will ever experience in Niceville, FL.
Econo, if people are unable to read, that is their problem.
I did not criticize the serviceman who was referenced in that article.
And for the record, in my little "Ivory Tower" here in Niceville FL, I live within a few miles of two major military installations, Eglin and Hurlburt. I am very well acquainted with what the military families have had done to them by lenders and Realtors as some of the people who have been victimized by this are my friends.
I have nothing but the highest respect for those who serve our nation in the military. If you read for content you might find that nowhere did I allege that this family "deserved it."
I in fact defended his decision to stick the bank as not only supportable but entirely reasonable.
So before you run off in some fit of pique, you might try reading for content.
I was defending that serviceman and his family, not attacking him.
I'm well aware as well that a military family cannot just turn in the keys and walk without potentially severe consequences for their military career.
This does not change the fact that the family should never have been given that loan. This is not their fault - it is the bank's (or lender's) fault.
If you are the one who is responsible for raising people's ire, you owe both them and me an apology.
By the way, Defcon 5 is "Peacetime." Defcon 1 is "Oh ****."
They're not at Defcon 5.
