Re: 73 Generals promoted

Back in the day, another good thing was getting a slice of each ghost soldier's salary.

Anyways, the military here is a joke. There are very few full-time soldiers. For the most part (even for the gendarmerie) it's a part time job. Very little training involved.

Why are you suddenly bumping old threads? Just because you were in self-imposed exile and stopped posting for X weeks doesn't mean you can dig out all the old threads with impunity...

Their salaries are much higher than usual. It's a good gig for the soldiers.
