As you know, this country stopped the military draft in 1972. Since that time we have relied on volunteers. Now I'd like to ask you a few questions about our armed forces.
B. How do you feel about the pay and benefits that people in the armed forces receive? Would you say the pay and benefits should be larger than they are now, should they be smaller, or are they about the right amount?
